Allen you may find this to be a "ridiculous sandbag". However, I and Dan Hutchins drilled it, alternating holes, by hand, on the lead, from stances and a sling over a knob. Both of us were able to red-point it hanging the draws and we thought that 5.12a was about right. We called it Mind Over Matter. In truth, I think the level of slab climbing in the Platte had evolved to an extremely high standard by the mid-'80s. The route to the right is called Weekend Warrior and checks in about 5.11b.
