Comments: I was surprised to find this line was just as hard as its neighbor to the left (Unrelieable). A strange line with multiple cruxy sections- not bad by any means, but far from classic- like even farther than BCC is from LCC;)

Comments: A key crystal some-what recently peeled off on this route rendering it more difficult at the crux. Of course if you are one of the few who are over 6 feet tall and have great flexibility you can simply stem the crux and earn the 12a grade. Calling Big Red!!! If not, you must perform one of the strangest moves this strange canyon has to offer. These strange-hard moves prove quite satisfying once unlocked. I feel confident calling the non-giant crux solid V5, and therefore the route 12c. There are... more >>

Comments: Definitely harder than 12a below the first chains, and so squeezed at the bottom its lame. The unpleasant tweaking at the low roof was a bummer. The extension was brilliant and hard- compression moves with horrid feet.

Comments: If this route had been bolted offset in a way that followed the holds instead of having just a plumb line of bolts, the experience would have been greatly improved. I felt it was the best line on the wall and it was really a letdown to have it squeezed so hard by Armegeddon- even to the point of sharing holds. A single shared start with divergent bolt lines would have been much better.

Comments: As a pure and beautiful line, it is a shame it was squeezed so hard by neighboring routes.

Comments: Hyper-tech! There's more bolts than holds on this route! Still great climbing, it's like a brain teaser of micro funk! 12d...that's hilarious!

Comments: Agreed one of the best in AF, and best of grade most likely...it's a total shame the bolt job is jingus on the lower half... disappointing

Comments: A total handbag at 12a...it feels the same difficulty as License to Thrill...11c
Be careful with the slab...ground falls possible.

Comments: Great route and great write up! Spot on Boissal. Techy thin sustained (and clean!) alpine limestone (marble). Balancy and weavy with hidden holds. 11D...Why? Because it's harder and certainly more involved than Medussa (perhaps a soft 11c), and its also harder than Shelter From The Storm's first pitch... 11d.

Comments: Though of that Talladega...'cept all the other routes on the wall more or less felt accurately graded. What I wouldn't give right now for 40 degrees!;)

Comments: With tenuous stances, and sparce micro specific gear that is difficult to place, this route is more deserving of an R rating upgrade than many routes that already have it.

Comments: Listed as 11c in the guide books...maybe someting broke? Maybe I'm just becoming light...Drew if you can show me how this is 3 grades easier I'll gladly change the rating;)

Comments: Drew did you intend for this to finish direct at the 5th bolt on gear? Or does it traverse 10 feet hard left to share a bolt with Christopher of the Everglades and Bald Headed Babies and then traverses back right to finish at the last bolt in the small right facing corner/roof? The thin gear and holds are there for the independent/direct line into the small roof...
