Climbed this last weekend (5/24/08). If felt pretty stiff for 5.11a, at least for a small ape factor. The 11a section is only two moves or so. Sure is a great climb though. The crux section on this 30 ft climb is going from a great jam/undercling and finger jam up high to great hand jams. I seemed too short to get to the hand jam, I managed to get a bomber knuckle jam at the bottom of the crack. Unfortunately, my feet slipped and I ended up tearing A LOT of skin off both sides of my knuckle. My partner had better beta, which involved pulling on the other side of the toprope. I too succumbed to this, just to feel what the hand jams were like had I made the reach. If you can they are great! Of course you'll need them to smear your feet up the final overhanging six feet.

Probably the most aesthetic climb at this crag, sure sucks it's only 30 ft high or so.
