Jug just below the crux was found to be dangerously loose. I coerced it out to keep it from killing a belayer standing in the wrong spot... likely upped this route's rating a letter grade or two.

Climbed this twice yesterday. Didn't know the jug was removed. That explains why it felt hard for 5.10b/c. Consensus between my partner and me is 5.11a.

I'll second the 5.11a rating. This route is really fun and moves really well even with a hold gone. A body tension/face section and a little power required over the roof! Cool!
