A super-burly start out the low roof leads to a good rest and some easier climbing and another crux above. This one being more annoying than hard. The mantel at the top is a little grovelly and deciding what to use for holds was the crux for me.

Overall, it climbs like a couple boulder problems stacked on top of each other. If the roof moves were higher up, it would be 5.12 for sure 'cause they are hard.

If you have bouldery strength and are looking to tick a hard 5.11, this one could be for you.


Second from the left side of the crag...Starting under the low roof....


4 bolts to chains.

Very hard to tell but if you asked me how hard is the start, I would say V6. Very strange for 5.11d. May 19, 2015

I'm curious as to how other people do the start. I did a weird jump from the small starting crimp towards a sharp hand jam on the right. Felt hard. Funky and unpleasant. Oct 23, 2017
