Holds have broken on this and the grade is no longer 11d but closer to 12b. A very nice route as well Feb 21, 2014

Thanks Jack. I climbed it the other day and somewhere around there seemed more appropriate. Check out the Cumbia Cave if you get a chance we go every weekend down there this winter Feb 24, 2014

For sure Mark I've heard great things about that area. Thanks for all your hard work developing it I'm sure it's amazing. Feb 26, 2014

Great route with cool movement and features. Too bad the rock is so soft, I broke a few more holds, and it's probably low-end 12b now. Hopefully the holds that are there hang in there. Do this route now, before it's 12d. Also use long draws, or back clean the first two bolts to help with rope drag. Apr 11, 2017

Soft rock and a bouldery crux at the very top. High first bolt felt pretty sporty. May 26, 2018

Some online sources name this "Landscaping". Yeah, the rock is sandy and soft, but still 12a. Brushing the sand off just creates more sand...it's that soft. Feb 1, 2019
