Never Believe 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  AL : Sand Rock : Holiday Block
Start up steep face through a difficult move to arrive at a roof. Pull roof on good holds (wingspan helps) and continue to move up and left on jugs to shared shuts with Plush. Some good heel hooks and no-hand rests available (if you want them). Felt harder than the 11a rating from the DCA. Definitely gets your pump on....[more]   Browse More Classics in AL

There's a chimneyish feature on the N. side that allows easy access to the top. Basically a short 4th or low 5th class solo.
