[Hide Comment] Myself and my partners think this is harder than 10c. I think it is about 10d in difficulty. It is a fun route, but be ready for some difficult slab climbing. Oct 9, 2013

[Hide Comment] Not sure about 11a (I think Debra was harder), but Two Chains is bringing the troll magic to this page. Really fun climb. Mar 17, 2018
