really cool movement, but it is still pretty chossy, should clean up nicely though without changing the grade. Very soft for 12a

yeah Hoctor, crush that 12a you woolly one-eyed monster you!!!

If this is 12a, Andrew Wheatley is not a girl.

If this is 12a, Crompy's mom is not a fat, greasy, Jabba-the-Hutt-style lay

11b/c for this one. Good warmup for the wall. Should clean up nice.

I do believe that the FA called it something like 11a? Not sure where the 5.12 grade came from. I think 11a would be sandbagged, but 11b is fair.

FA was October 2010 by Shaun Corpron, Janelle Anderson and Mike Anderson. We rated it 10b and called it "Cub's Scoot".

Just to clarify, I think this is the route at the far right side of the large overhanging cave area. It is the least steep of the routes in this area and has an optional dihedral crack at the start. If I'm wrong about that please correct me, but the route description ain't too descriptive.

Not bad, not 5.12.
