This is a good lead if you are new to 11a cracks, protects well with small cams and nuts, some hard moves to good rests makes this a pretty easy 11a.
My rule is if I can on-sight it, it must not be 11a, might even be 10c, but it is pretty pumpy.There are a few hard to protect chossy bits to bypass, but they are short bits.
There is now ( 2/2016 ) a 2 bolt sport permadraw type anchor at the top of this. Maybe not to worry but I noticed that the left bolt is either near or over a hollow flake, hopefully a 3" bolt.

|High quality for vantage standards. This crack eats small to medium stoppers nearly the entire way. Like almost all cracks at vantage, you can bypass cruxy sections of crack by utilizing face and arete holds on adjacent climbs. That's probably why it didn't feel 5.11. Climbed using just the crack it definitely will feel 5.11 as an onsight lead.|
