The first ascent information for this route has been edited to reflect the convoluted nature of the various ascents.

FA or first ascent is just that - the first person or persons to climb the route in any style, be it aid, top-rope, free climbed or even on-sight solo. The first ascent, depending upon the manner of the ascent, may be improved upon but there can only be one first ascent. Sep 30, 2014

Wow. Where to even begin. So many transgressions to such a proud route!!!

First, you guys changed the grade on this climb. I listed it as .12a, because it was 12a before some tossers aggressively cleaned the holds into jugs. Way to drag it down to your level chippers! But the fact that my opinion of this climb was changed to .11- without my consent just shows that ethics don't exist on the internet.

Second, a couple guys bolting in bad style which had already been led in good style! And then claiming the FA! Shocking!! Rap bolting a route which had seen an onsight free solo... then claiming the FA! Newsflash: if something has been climbed without a rope before you, you didn't get the FA!

I have re-edited the route to reflect it's proud and true history! Sep 29, 2014
