One Toprope Bolt on top back up with #4, now sports 4 lead bolts. In Slaters Guidebook called room with a view says its hard 11, easy 12. Felt 11b. Starts on relatively big holds with a nice undercling to get you to a stance to start moving. move up and right onto tiny edges and crimps. Continue that pattern up to right below the bolt and finish with a weird mantle highstep thing.

Powerful, dynamic edging and smearing on high steps and small crimps to a final crux reach for a 'jug.' Ultra classic.

5.11c/d, but a few letters easier for someone with a big reach.

EDITED: Internet video spraying aside, I thought this route really deserved a video, as it is very technical and even dynamic for someone with a normal wingspan. Mickey and Jordan seemed to run up it just fine, and skip all the smaller edges, but for us mere mortals there's a lot more pain and sequencing to finish the route. Here it is:

Future edit: I've since gone back and done this route two different ways. If you match your left foot to a left hand at the first bolt is climbs about .11c/d. If you stay far right closer to the edge, .11b is fair. Two different sequences for the start.

That is a nice video. Those little holds are nice to skip with long arms : )

this was a very satisfying route to redpoint, very technical requiring precise footwork the whole way.
