Didn't know what this was when we got on it but we saw that splitter crack up the second half of the route and gave it a go. I thought it climbed more like a 10 than 11- but that's just me. The potentially questionable rock on the first half seemed more solid than I expected. Great warmup if you're here for the harder stuff.

Just climbed this again and I agree Clayton, it really climbs more like a 10 so i went ahead and changed the name. Looks like there's potential for a second pitch?

This is pretty much the first route you get to after the trail meets the rock wall. Excellent!

Took another BD #1 and was happy to have that just after the mini roof/big pod.

Heads up:
Block just after the first pod is loose. Not looking to come out any time soon though.

We decided to go ahead and give this gem a name after speaking to a few regular's in IC. The plaque at the base now reads "Dread Pirate Roberts".
