Cool route. Its alil chossy looking from the ground but it climbs well

I dont know what to rate this route right now because its just a sustained crimp route, no really crux in it besides maybe a few longer moves. 11 something?

fun route. Will probally become much harder when all the holds finish breaking off.

This thing will be a 12, give it two years. I only climbed it twice and broke off at least 4 holds

I think it is 11a. Cool face climbing on subtle knobs jutting out from the wall. Seemed pretty solid when I did it, but you could see where lots of stuff had broken off.

Very fun route. The team cleaned it up some. I don't see it getting any more difficult than it is now. If the little pinch at the crux were to break there is slightly harder beta to the left. It would need to be cleaned. I would rate it 10d. If you are very short it would be harder.

The first ascentionist is 4' 11". Definitely not 5.10 or even 5.11 for her!

I'm taller than 4'11"!!!! But yeah, you guys are right, a lot more difficult for shorter people.

Not 11d, more like 11c. 11d for dwarfs, midgets, and elfs. And Yoda too! Wait, no, it might only be 5.7 for Yoda since he has those "special" midichlorian powers. Maybe 5.10d for Sunnyboy since he is like a God in mastering the subtle ways of the Force. Still probably 11 something for most mere mortals lacking in Jedi knowledge.

So this route is just two letter grades than the one to the right?

We'd like to add a 2nd pitch to this one also. Oh yeah, what fun it will be. Great views from the top too.

In its current state the crux is a long reach to a small, crimpy hold, and then a long move off of that with several remnants of broken holds in that vicinity. I think 11d sounds about right, for now at least.
