The Climb 

This vertical line is right around the corner of The Cave, facing south. Easy moves lead to a obstinate move or two for the crux finish.

Pretty hard and thin last move. Maybe 11a with a tight rope as I see most people use on TR's. No loop = no send

No tight ropes here! But when I did it decades ago the grade seemed fair. That said, there were times I'd get it first try and other times that I bitched that something changed and the route spit me off.
