This is the first line encountered when you reach the wall on the main trail from the parking area. It begins on a low rock shelf with about 15 feet of precarious climbing on questionable rock. A high first bolt protects this section after which the rock quality and the movement greatly improve for the remainder of the route.

4 stars for sure, even with the start, which reallly isn't that bad.

Yep I really liked this climb as well, pulling the roof at the hueco at the end was really fun too!

I broke the cool little finger bucket/surfboard juglet before the first Hueco - I guess there's a little less choss in that section now. Shouldn't change the grade at all though.

Great route, must do. As good as, or better than, a brief history of climb.

Had trouble seeing the holds between 2 and 3 at first but they are there. Fun climbing!

The rock on the start looks questionable but is solid. Fun low crux and chill climbing for the rest. 5 stars! One of the best 11s in Miller.

I personally thought this route was at least as much fun as Whip Stocking at Drive By - maybe better. Pretty bouldery to get established on the face then cruise on great holds.
