I disagree with PaulC3P0-- I thought the moves on this thing were awesome! It'll always be a classic in my heart. No matter what anyone says. Ever.

I can see how someone like Yasmeen would like a route like this because it's kind of like watching Woody Allen play Frankenstein in a high school play but instead of wearing glasses he is wearing a turqoise necklace. However, Paulc3po needs to turn his Elvis lip into something useful and suck it up to fight the pump.

not consistent enough to be a classic, but is a 5 star route nonetheless.

Good route but definitely not a must do. I'd be hesitant to call it a classic.

Fun agreed but with a no hands right before the move it seemed a bit soft.

Great route...a bit soft if you are taller/good at lying down

I found most 5.11ds I´ve done here (Buddha Hole, Return of Chris Snider, Gold Rush) were harder.

I can't believe that there is such a huge difference in the grading of the route. 11c to 12d? I hope that the 12d grade. And everyone gives me shit about how i grade things :)

That 12d and 12c is the wankers who want to keep it at 12a trying to pull it up.

der uber said on June 19th, 2008
not a bad route. soft for the grade, but it would be solid for 11d. I do like how it stays on you at the finish.

kidney_dave said on July 1st, 2008
easier than wild yet tasty...so probably 11d is right...decently fun route regardless of the grade...
25
SCIN said on November 23rd, 2008
Changed the grade to 5.11d.

Go Ray! Down grade that s***! Perhaps you should take out the "must do for the 5.12 climber" part... However, I'm a little sad to see the change, Muir Valley did give me a lot of my first "12's" after all... If only I could send Ro...

11d or 12a, whatever. the current grade is within the margin of error in grading in general. the commentary about this route is hilarious. I had a lot of fun on it.

12a, but soft. Roof crux climbs well with the right beta and a 6 foot wingspan.

i'm old and weak but have yanked my way on draws up quite a few 12-'s, that's a long roof move that seemed non-negotiable.

It's negotiable. I'm 5'1.

felt very soft for the grade, but still a great line, great movement, great rests.

Good movement on good rock. The sustained finish was unexpected for the Solarium headwall. Definitely worth getting on.
