Bouldery face leads to an amazing sandtone tufa. Belay up high on a ledge system that is best accessed from the right. A 2-bolt extension bumps the grade to 12- and is worth climbing if dry.

No way this is 11b. Its way harder than Areterection! So at least 11d. Or maybe it would just take a hella long time to work out the moves. Wow. Bouldery, technical, VERY challenging movement.

Areterection is 11- at best, sorry to disappoint. Did you do the extension? Agree that is way harder.

This route is really good. And I'd agree w/ slightly harder than 11b (although w/ beta felt really different than without).

The grade on this route should be updated to at least 11d judging by the conensus.

if you pay the 5$ per vehicle, you are allowed to downgrade one route of your choosing up to two letter grades.

Anon, dollar signs go on the front of numbers. For example, I paid your mother $5 for a blowie behind Koops, maybe she can use some of her earnings to buy you a proper education.
