Got on this before I knew which route was which. I intended to do Simple Simon but the big starting holds on this made me think I was on Simon. But the route just kept going and had moves that were way harder than 11b. I was really enjoying the sequences though so I decided to just climb it. Granted it took a few more tries..


The big jugs to the left of the Simple Simon start and just keep going...and going...

The FA was Darren Knezek and Bill Boyle. I originally climbed to the left from the anchors of Simple Simon using nuts and cams and put the anchors halfway up the wall. Called it the High, Hard One and rated it 5.11b. The old anchors stopped right in the middle of the climbing. A few years later Boyle wanted to extend the route up to the top of the wall as well as the climb to the left called Everest 101. I agreed as we both thought the routes should stop where the climbing stops and the grades went from the 5.11's to the 5.12's. Even though I put it up, I think its the best of the 12a's here on The Bad Bananas Wall. A really neat pumpy start followed by a tricky rest and then a steep powerful ending. May 22, 2008

Absolutely fabulous route with a tough first 4 bolts then lets up to a tedious rest, then up thru the last crux. Endurance and technical climbing with some nice delicate liebacks and some good slopers. Thanks DK for an awesome climb. My fav on the wall and well, higher and harder than the left 2 12a's.

Loved this route. Beautiful movement through the whole route. Definite upper and lower crux. Climbs on beautiful big jugs and a few gnarly sidepulls, huge moves throughout. Look for a fun drop knee at the beginning, a horizontal hand jam mid way for a good rest, and have fun pulling on the tiny crimp at the top that's just good enough to through to the sloppy 2-finger pocket.
