More people should get on this. It's very fun, with sustained climbing and interesting moves. Oct 10, 2017

Something key must have broken since October because there was a huge tick mark leading to a broken hold that is now unusable. I brushed the tick, but doing the move felt wicked hard. Maybe 12+ now? Nov 24, 2017

I did this route on the 23rd (2 days before Aimee's comment) and 12b seemed accurate. I didn't see any broken holds, but there were a few holds with ticks that I didn't use.

Where was the tick mark Aimee? There was a heavy tick mark wide right between the 2nd and 3rd bolt (crux). I presumed it to be a foot, but didn't use it at all.

Or, maybe something broke off on the 24th.

Aside from this potential issue, it is a great route and should see more traffic! Nov 27, 2017
