Thin crimpers and long reaches! There is a plate below this route labeling "Ohio Arts" (5.12b). This is actually the 3-bolt pitch right above Edge-a-Sketch.


Near the center of the wall.


8 bolts

This route is over rated at 11a. 11b is silly. Apr 13, 2012

Most fun route on this section of cliff that I did, especially the start. Great for early 11 leaders. It's soft. Just stick clip it and give it a go. Jun 11, 2014
Are you people crazy? I'm sick of the sandbags. This could possibly be soft at 11b but it's solid 11- Oct 30, 2014

I think the rating is congruent with Muir Valley ratings. May 5, 2015

This is a really great line. 11a I would say (especially if you don't stick clip the bottom) but you are out of the hard moves right away. Probably more like 10c/d the rest of the way if you like slabby stuff.

I would suggest stick clipping this though, the bottom is a bit tough. Jun 30, 2015

Very good route. Stick clip recommended. .11a seems fair but the top 1/3 is much easier than .11a. Oct 26, 2015

Note: consider stick clipping the second bolt - I found the moves up to it pretty tough and although the clipping hold is good, it would put you in grounder territory. May 31, 2016

A fun V2/3 boulder problem leads to technical, vertical climbing that gradually lets up after the 4th or 5th bolt. Very fun climb. Consider stick-clipping the first or second bolt. Oct 17, 2016
