This route is great and it stays dry in a downpour. Trust me, I was climbing it in one.

This was my first 11 climb and it felt more like a 10-something to me too.

if you cut right probably 10+ and if you go straight 11-. However, it is super fun, aesthetic, and some of the prettiest rock at military. great route!

if you stay left you do not have to do as many moves compared to going right. But left is definately harder.

Choose your grade. Stay left or go right. Make it .11 or .10!

yep, up to the 3rd bolt is the hardest part, and i wouldn't want to fall clipping the 2nd or 3rd due to a swing potential into a big rock (not that bad though). 2nd bolt clipping hold is one of the smaller holds on the climb, but positive. 3rd bolt on the other hand has a nice jug to clip from if you move to it.

It's all there if you go straight up & you won't pendulum like you would if you fell going right.

One of the newer guidebooks has this still listed as 11b. It is much easier. 10c seems right. Super fun route for sure!
