Climbed Debra with Deb. Nice, sunny, quiet spot, and good job by the Chinos. I think the thin moves down low are harder than some CCC 11s. (Maybe more like a 1970s Gunks 5.10- ?) Perhaps a key hold has broken off, increasing the difficulty since the route was established? May 5, 2013

There is definitely some truth to that. The moves down low are cryptic and a bit reachy but easy once you chalk up the actual holds that are slightly left of the bolt line. I think that goes for all of the routes on the wall because of the crumbly schist that exists on the techy slab moves. I thought all of the routes here, except Tropicalia, were decent, but the real perk for coming here is the seclusion. Oct 18, 2013

This is certainly harder than 10b. It may be about 10d, but it is quite a surprise when you think it will be easier. The holds are not obvious at the crux, and you don't really have time to figure things out if you are trying to on-sight the route. The route is good, but like many routes on this wall, it is harder than originally rated. May 15, 2014

This is the hardest route on the wall I think. Very tricky down low with some really tech foot work. I really enjoyed this. Mar 17, 2018
