I can't comment on the stars, because once it cleans up, it has potential. When I climbed it, it was an absolute dirtpile. I didn't have a clue what I was getting on... it was just an open line. Had some exhilirating sections. Not sure if it was because of the dirt, or the moves. Ha. At any rate, I'm sure it will end up being comparable to the others on the wall, with a harder start and fewer jugs.

yep, parts are def still dirty. If you climb on this wall, take a brush (in addition to your chalk brush). Also, if you cheat left at the crux, your off route and it is really dirty, and the laws of physics may break down at that point.

i couldn't get the damn start but got it clean after that. i remember being on a mossy/dirty sloper and wanting to brush it and then i realize my brush loop on my chalk bag had broken and i didn't have a brush. a good cleaning would help but the start is off character for the rest of the route.

Great route once you brush it.

Hold breakage and lichen were an butt kickers. Figuring out the start was fun. This thing still needs some love, but there is potential here.

lots of fun, maybe a little hard for 11b. When it cleans up I am sure it will be good

Sick start, should be more like "About Six Feet", as I am about six feet tall with a zero ape index and I could just barely get on the thing standing on my tip toe on the pointy rock in the ground at the start. With that being said it is not a bad climb, I cleaned it some more, as it needed it, and got it 2nd go. It is 11b/c, but that is discounting the crazy @$$ start :) Not sure how to grade that.. I guess A0 / 5.11 b/c or...????? if you do the finger tip pullup? Still needs more traffic to really clean up.
