Sustained climbing leads to a surprisingly balancy crux right before reaching the arete. Don't get run off by the slightly high second bolt as the holds are bomber till after the clip.


This line runs directly up the middle of combination blocks, 10ft right of Double Trouble

The first crux seemed hard for the grade (10c?). Crux of the ledge felt fair for the grade. A little spooky making the moves off the ledge because of the ledge fall potential.

I was told this route doesn't get much attention. Not sure why. I found it to be one of the funnest low 11s in the park. Although B1 and 2 might look a bit spaced, both crux moves are with a bolt at your chest or just below. Recommended.

Interesting moves, but rather short.

I'm really not sure of the grade either. Guidebook says 11a and here as well - but I climbed Panic Attack (11d/12a) right after and found it barely harder that this (Crux for crux)... Also climbed Ring of Fire (11d) and though it was longer, a bit harder at the crux and more sustained, I don't see how that can be 11a if the other grades are anything close to right. I've onsighted multiple 11a at Smith, and this one is very much smith-style... Perhaps I just had a bad climb. At any rate this is solid 11 for sure IMO, I'd give it a b.

For those worried about falling after the 1st clip above the ledge - the fall is actually OK it seems from above, because the ledge peters out just below those bolts, so you wouldn't be falling on the ledge. Not the best fall but I doubt you'd hurt yourself unless unlucky.
