One hard move at the first bolt..followed by pure endurance climbing...looks cooler than it climbs. Fun none the less.

harder than resurrection or tuna town or leave it to beavis.

12c is going a little to far, you put a normal 12c climber on this route and they would more than likely get there ass kicked. it is SOLID 12d, and I have the thing wired.

dirty and green most the year, I agree with Allah 12c is crazy

Definitely harder than Resurection (very hard 12c), Tuna Town (very light 12d), and also High Hard One. Not really any hard moves, but the endurance level is 12d/13a. Harder than Phantasia also, so I call it the easiest 13a in the gorge.

Harder than Phantasia?????? What are you nuts!!!!!
Anonymous said on October 24th, 2006
there is no way this thing is 13a.
Anonymous said on October 22nd, 2007
calling this thing .13a is a total joke. go climb Convicted and then tell me this thing is just as hard. there's a rest at every bolt except one on Harvest!

pretty cool, aside from those manky holds (just at the bottom). better route than I expected. long, sustained. 12d.
Meadows said on October 7th, 2010
It's hard to grade this one because of the kneebar potential (one guy use 7). I used only the one at the bottom and thought it easier than HH1, but on par with Resurrection.

Wet as hell.

Great route even with the damp holds...whole-body climbing

Some of the coolest features on the wall despite a few dirtier holds. Fantastic, must-do.
