Just above Mark is the shadow line of the thin-chip undercling. At the right end of this is a distinct shadow highlighting the "Black Potato", a dark protrusion the size & shape of a baker, and popping the mantle on this is the final difficult move on this unrelenting pitch. I think this pitch is harder than .11b. The rock is steep, the holds are continuously dime size, and there is but one rest, which comes low. To flash this, one had better be a 5.11+ slab master. I think it is .11c...solid, and at least as hard, or harder than "Season's End" or "Winter Solstice"...just sayin'...
