I personally felt like this was harder than the grade. The cruxy start felt more like 11c or d. I also felt like the climb to the left of this one was harder than it's grade. (Aftershock, 10c)

Although this could be because I'm only 5'6", but the people I was with also felt they were both a bit hard. Jun 13, 2008

Good route, pretty much a boulder problem start to easier (but interesting) climbing for the remainder of the route. Jul 26, 2008

11a my arse! bring a bouldering pad for the start cause you aren't going to get gear in till 15 feet up when you can finally get to a stance. The start is devoid of feet and gear is tricky to place and blocks your best finger locks. Punch it to the roundy jug out left and have a .3 handy. Jul 18, 2013

This hard for 11a, with the crux right off the deck and no real chance to plug gear until you're through it. After pulling halfway through the crux and jumping off twice, I slotted a nut using a stick to protect the moves off the deck. Jul 3, 2014

Sandbag!

Minus points for the hiking gumbies who will walk right through your stuff as you attempt to make upward progress. May 29, 2017
