Hardest .10b ever.

What would you call it out of curiosity? We figured it at .10b when we did it, but didnt have anyone else's thoughts.

It is kinda slabby, so grade respect goes out the window. However, the section going around the ear or being forced out onto the face is quite difficult and awkward. The stone is bomber and the available holds are obvious, its just tough to execute smoothly. Personally Id say .10c or d though some folks may think .11a. Makes me timid to try the Sting at .11 just to the left, plugging pro.

Sport climbing is one evolutionary step beyond gym climbing. Climbers who never progress beyond this stage are basically developmentally retarded.

Well that answers the timeless question, If a trees falls on a sport climb and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound ? Apparently it does ... an anonymous whimper

This was a great route, although I would agree in saying that a 10c/d grade would be more appropriate. Crux is over quickly though so it's hard to judge(it's all relative anyways...)
