[Hide Comment] Amended the grade up a letter on 3rd ascent. 11b feels right. Open to feedback.

[Hide Comment] The second and last bolts are blockhead bolts. The climb is somewhat contrived, forcing the crux. Great to have a more challenging climb; thank you for bolting it. There are lots of loose holds on this one, so please make sure your belayer is wearing a helmet. May 25, 2023

[Hide Comment] Agreed on wearing a helmet. Trundling in this area is difficult due to the high volume of climbers that frequent this crag. I need to get out there at night and clean this route up.

Regarding the grade, I realize this climb might be contrived as you can potentially work around crux sections by walking left under the first roof and then climbing the face staying left. The intended line is attacks the roof directly following the bolt line and forces some fun, bouldery moves. Fun either way, but definitely easier if you go left after the third bolt. Jun 13, 2023

[Hide Comment] This is a really cool option for the Blockhead chains. I think the moves might be height dependent (I'm 5'10 +2 ish). It felt like a well protected burley 10d/11a for me. I'm looking forward to getting on it again to feel it out a bit more, and to double check that I was on the intended line.

I'd suggest unclipping the third draw (or using an alpine draw) after you get the 4th clip because otherwise the rope drag is pretty severe. 3 days ago
