I usually don't bitch about grades but this thing is way harder than 11.b, I thought it used to be a 12 TR? It may not be a 12 but it's at least 11c/d
J-Rock said on March 22nd, 2005
It depends which side of the bolts you climb on. It is definitely harder to the right (closer to the tree), but easier to the left. You can also wander around a bit and you won't really find any moves harder than 11b. Crimp, crimp, high foot, jug... crimp, crimp, high foot, jug, etc. The original top-rope line was the harder version.

this thing is hard, but fun

I think 11b is accurate. It's just not a one move wonder like many 11b's

Lots of jugs if you look. 11a/b in my opinion
Meadows said on June 20th, 2005
This route should have three stars, not two.

i climbed to the right and thought it was no harder than .11b. perhaps you're weak?
hoss said on February 9th, 2006
perhaps you're a bitch
MADMIKE said on July 13th, 2006
I climbed it last week, staying right (by the tree) and thought 11b was accurate.

staying right of the bolts = best route on the wall. fact.
nik said on May 8th, 2012
loved the crack action at the top! totally send-able for someone breaking into the grade (short, not super crimpy, couple of decent rests).
