Did this July 2007, thinking we were doing Cruising for Burgers. -- Hey gettin' old, no guidebook, whatever. Maybe we did it differently from other folks, but the crux move out right from a small overhang is very thin and committing -- No way it is 9+, even by the old standards for Eldo. To me anyway, the move was harder than anything on Break on Through (rated 10b), which we had just completed before. And finally, S or R seems right to me. Given all of the above, it IS worth doing, whether other climbs are taken or not.
