Johnathan Siegrist made the first ascent in November 2010. Before he linked it, the climb was referred to as "The Honeycomb Project".
Adam Ondra onsighted Pure Imagination on November 1, 2012 suggesting low end 8c+. An hour later, on the same day, he onsighted the neighboring Golden Ticket suggesting high end 8c+. Both climbs were originally rated 9a.
Also, the beautiful and incredibly talented Sasha DiGiulian made the first female ascent in October 2011. At the time her ascent was considered the most difficult American female sport achievement to date. The video of her working the climb and her actual ascent is very inspiring.

|onsights with pre placed draws are onsights in hard sport. just because you can't do it doesn't make it not an onsight. placing the draw is secondary.|
