I believe this has been sent by Blake Bowling and goes at 12c.

This route has been done by Blake Bowling and the grade has been given at 12d, although I thought it was easier. Try comparing this to 8-Ball or High Hard One... Ri Ron't Rink Ro Raggy!

felt like 12d to me. v5 at the start feels easy compaired to the v1 at the top.

good route, the bottom boulder problem was really cool, thought it was 12a/b, with all the no-hands rests it was easier than chainsaw or ale8

ok, maybe a 12b with the boulder problem, not trying to sandbag, the boulder problem was a lot easier than Strevels or Stretcherous

Felt about the same as Far From God, with a slightly more bouldery crux. Still not that hard

Soft for 12c. I voted 12b. Lots of rests.... goes on forever. Suprisingly solid throughout. Worthwhile. Odyssey...

Easy and resty after the bouldery start. I really like long routes like this even if it isn't 5 star movement most of the way. I wore new velcro anasazis and used mediocre footwork.

i like this route a lot -- more than far from god probably. it has a better boulder problem, which is also much harder than the bottom part of FFG. even the climbing to the top is consistently more challenging and thoughtful. a bit chossy in parts but not too bad. i think 12b is fine, but i'd argue it's toward the upper end of the grade range (harder than mercy, similar to ale-8 for comparisons to classic enduro b's). anyways, next time all the bros are in line for FFG do yourself a favor and jump on this instead.
