Description

Have you ever noticed that the more over-rated a route is the more people like it? If this route was rated 11b, it would be 1 star. Or a 2 star 11c. or a 3 star 11d. But when graded 12a, it is most definitely 4 star classic and one of the best routes you ever done. Or not.

Climbs past thin moves and edges on white rock.
Except for the very start which is in a shadow, this route gets lots of morning sun and is good for spring, fall, and cool mornings.

Note: If you have a 3rd, its easy to take great pictures from atop the big boulder behind the route.

Location

In the Lombard Street corridor. Starts just left of a juggy "hole" and ascends small edges from the get go.

Protection

6 bolts, chains with steel biners

Yeah, I'd say this is 5.11b at the hardest, and certainly no more than 2 stars. Aug 12, 2018
