|Sorry I think I sandbagged this route the first ascent went really well so I figured it was 11a then my brother and I climbed it again 2 years latter and thought it was more like 11b/c The crux move is reachy so if you are short it may be evan harder. Sean H.|

Agreed. That thing kicked my ass. Pumpy jug haul to the midway hole then big moves to devious sidepulls and a hell of a hard time getting the feet out of the hole and onto the face. Stout.
The crux bolt is in a really shitty spot and the nut is loose. I hand tightened it as well as I could but beware, this is where falls happen. Maybe moving it a few inches to the right makes sense? It gets in the way of the undercling that makes the whole route, the draw resting on your thumb and being a giant pain in the ass.
