great climb! I broke off at hand sized hold right as i grabbed the big rail and it caused me to go full cliff hanger and was able to make the 3rd clip and couldn't read the pull over in time and pumped out. Breaking that intermediate hold off.. IMO made the traverse to the big rail harder/reachy.. overall really cool climb that is way out of the ordinary for the Hills. I'd say 11b for the onsight as its tricky to read. May 18, 2015

Hard move on the Rail - I see where the huge piece broke off. Puts this climb more into 11b/c now. NOT a 11a/b. Use the left toe hook under roof to stay on. Tricky sequence but hand over hand worked best for me. Keep right on Rail, I went left and up, this made it a lot harder of a climb.
Awsome climb - wish it was longer! Apr 19, 2016
Did this climb September, 2016. Broke off a giant jug under the 4th bolt. On my 2nd attempt I also broke off a large foot hold under the 4th bolt. I would suspect the climb is now 5.11d. Sep 10, 2016
