nice bouldery line.... a bit of a walk from the main lines, but you'll enjoy it when you get there.

Personally, I thought Gladiator was much harder than the likes of Super Best Friends. Glad is a consensus 12a with votes for 11d. This is a very short route, you wont’ get pumped out of your mind, but you will pull through a nasty little traverse boulder problem. Super’s a cake walk versus the moves of Glad. Super is a consensus 12b, Glad is no easier. I guess the difference is the Muir Valley kids don’t hike to Glad to get their assess handed to them.

Scobro, your comparing apples to ... grapefruits. I remember it being a cool short route, but try this one on for size compared to strevels, infectious, sex farm, etc. They might be better consensus 12b's to compare with :)

I concur with Chriss. Not to mention 9 people have voted and not one has voted 12b.

Super is also more like 11d.
