Adam;....that route Planet Z is PDH....(pretty damn hard)....5.10+/5.11-........AND it's way hard if you are shorter than 6' tall........it only has that one hard section at the top, and it's steep and you can't see the "secret" holds.....once you figure it out (and are tall)....you can "wire" the climb.

Must have been a "high gravity" day for me Mike, so for ego's sake, I'm sticking with 11....lol Oct 17, 2011

That'd be 'Planet Z' (5.10d), Adam. Jan 25, 2010
Hmmm. We attempted a bolted route up this (a few feet right of the climber) and thought it to be in the 11 range. I should revisit this area Jan 25, 2010
