11c once you figured out the beta. The first try I grabbed all the wrong holds at the bottom, fell going for the ledge, and thought, no way this is 11c. 2nd go it felt right on for the grade. Really cool sequence through the first 3 bolts.

grabbed some heinously bad holds, fought for the ledge, then looked down and said, "ohhh". Good rock climb.
