Considerably harder than 11b. Quite reachy on most of the moves.

Those shorter than 5'10" won't even be able to get off the ground without stacking rocks.

Simon thought it was at least 12a.

From watching the video it appears some holds broke down low as the initial move past the bolt is now a big throw.

This one also now has an anchor. Oct 12, 2017
