Description [Suggest Change]

Pull through a reachy start to reach a horizontal break at the first bolt (stick clip highly recommended).

Crank a boulder problem that has no place on an 11d/12a route and continue up easier, unremarkable climbing for the next 30 feet.

Given 4 stars and an 11+ rating in the guidebook -- the crux would not be out of place on a 12+ route, but given the much easier climbing afterwards (5.10-) I would assume the developer took the "average" difficulty into consideration as opposed to single moves.

Rock quality is better than most of the area.

Location [Suggest Change]

One of the first climbs on Ninja Wall when coming from the approach trail.

Protection [Suggest Change]

5 bolts to chain anchor.

FAs intent after bolt 3 or 4 can be difficult to suss out. To make it more challenging, traverse right after bolt 4 to be directly under bolt 5 and go up from there (definitely a bit contrived). Staying left at the top is definitely low 5.10 climbing. Jun 7, 2017
