Great climb. Very fun. Not sure its really a even a 5.10a although some of the beginning moves are a little stretched out. Maybe for 5.10-11 if you're under 6ft. Great fun though.

Far more difficult than Losers Weepers and Pet Semetary, both of which are 11a. Less strenuous than Whippersnapper. Worth doing... Odds are you'll get to the top, go for it.

Hieronymus Posch: Are you sure you were on Alien? The book has Alien, Tarantella and the 12a next to it mislabeled. I haven't been on it yet. We tried to climb all the 10s at Lily Bluffs and this is where we ran out of daylight.
