Was wet when I finished bolting it, so didn't get it sent that day. Will get it opened as soon as we get some dry weather! Will be a pretty cool route.

I loved it, the crux fell like an 11 to me...the rest was tons of fun....

Great fun, just like the rest of this wall. the grades seem to be an average of the hardest moves and the easiest moves though.

Very cool moves at the bottom. Going over "the wave" was interesting.

10c. i thought A1A was harder and headier. good route, nice wall. 11a though??? y'all just need to brush up on your slick wall climbing.

Crazy cool moves on this thing for a “10d.” I was headed straight for 11+ attempts with a very low-percentage move (for me) before I decided to alter my strategy and try something a little closer to 10d’ish. I think krampus is correct though, if you average the first four bolts and then the remainder you come out with about a 10d. A1A may be headier, but not harder.

Felt soft after working out good beta for the crux. Wasn't expecting to see people calling it an 11 on here

Start was a bit intersting, the rest of the route is a waste of bolts.
