Holds are still breaking off on this one. Maybe it used to be .11a. I couldn't hold on to one of the key crimps, but it was a hot day and still felt damp. Maybe this would be better on a drier day.

Yeah I could see 11b for this one. It felt hard the second time around. Lots of hidden holds though.
