This route has a fantastic position and leads to the highest point on the Peak. I worked it off an on for a year with a couple partners and rated it between 5.10b and 5.10c. Then one day while I was working out the moves, a key foothold broke off an it suddenly jumped to 5.11! As I worked and cleaned the route it continued to evolve. Some days a new crimper would appear and the route would get easier. Other days, a hold would snap and it would get harder. It's a lot like the rock to the right of Flakes to Fresno on the Hikers Summit. When it finally jumped to 5.11 I gave up and Aaron picked up the torch. Have not been back but I suspect it will continue to "settle" a bit. Please get out and climb it and let us know where it lands. If nothing else, it's a great photo op! Mar 30, 2015
