This thing is sick hard... are you sure it is 13b... not that I have been on a lot of 13+ in my day but it feels more 13c or even d????

a rarely traveled gem... nice line Kenny

I dont think it is any harder than 13b it is just a different style, Climbers in the red arent use to short routes with really hard moves, The 3 routes are rated the same but all 3 climb so differently and they are all with in 20 ft of each other. Just a unique cliff and I was extremely lucky to be the one to put them all up. and super psyched that people love the area so much

An amazing line and one you will rarely have to wait in line for. Hard boulder problem.

To execute the move, simply dislocate your shoulder, pull chest into wall, re-locate shoulder, and then reach up. Easy.

Very cool route. I would describe the crux as a short V7 with easier climbing before and after. Still, it's difficult to execute on point. Maybe soft for the grade compared to other 13b's, but harder than most 13a's for sure. Get on it!
