    The 11a rating is what is given in the book. I think this line is perhaps a number grade easier than that. If you're a 5.10 leader, as I am on a good day, you will feel comfortable on this one.

    Wow that's quite a downgrade. I was very "tired" when I did it (on a top rope) and thought it was easy for 11a, but 10a doesn't quite right either. Felt a couple notches harder that the 10c (Waves of Rays), so maybe WOR is 5.9? That's possible. Anyway, these routes are OK, nothing special and not worth the hike from a pure climbing perspective, but possibly worthwhile for the scenery.

    First ascent: Dianne Barrow, Mark Rolofson, Rick Leitner, & Chris Alber in January 1998. Gotta love the rating system & the psychology behind it. I climbed this route numerous times, & I'll stick with .11a. Perhaps it can be climbed less direct at the crux. Great pitch with good rock.
