The lurkist said- squeeze job. i guess there is some value in having aonther option for climbing at a staging area where a bunch of people ae already hanging out. That said, I think this is clearly an example of where the route doesn't pass the test of "If there were no other routes around and I walked up on it, would I equip it?" There is just too much other rock in the Big Sinking that would yield four star classic lines to warrant over bolting a 35 foot squeeze job. Sorry to slag. Nothing personal intended.

One move move, but a one move wonder none the less. You do it on TR as you would stick clip the first bolt, due to the rock at the climbs base, which also takes away from the climb. Kinda weird that way the climb ends in the middle of the cliff too, and I am not sure 11d is accurate, probably easier like Allah suggests.

I can't climb 11's, yet I onsighted it... The bottom feels no harder than a 10d, and the top no harder than a 10a.

If you're going to rate a route according to it's single hardest move, 11.d is right on. The boulder problem at the start is at least V3 (11.d)
