[Hide Comment] Probably not quite 11d, the bolt can be skipped with modern micro pro. Oct 20, 2010

[Hide Comment] Not R rated... Skip the bolt and place blue/black aliens instead! This is an amazing trad testpiece at the falls. Oct 29, 2010
[Hide Comment] Not even close to R rated, even if you skip the bolt. This was the first bolt placed at The Falls and with todays small cams it's unnecessary. Although it is a great reminder of where we've come from.

Really cool stemming, palming, and liebacking through the crux.
The bit above is not a gimmie. Nov 19, 2010

[Hide Comment] Real fun climbing, but probably not R and a bit soft for 11d. Hop on it, don't late the R scare you Mar 28, 2017
