this route is exactly like watching someone who is really good at balancing stuff on their head because it looks easy and the grade is easy, but when you try it, it's not very easy.

This route is pretty damn hard for 5.11c. Cool route though.

how the hell did this go from 11c to 12a? Did some major holds break?

i just pissed on it

Fun route! I think it deserves 4 stars and would be a better warm-up than Chainsaw or the bottom of Tuna Town.

Is the big hueco on the right off?
Lil Josh said on August 30th, 2009
I don't know... was there tape going to it?

Awesome route. Fun moves with cool holds. Good warmup for the undertow wall.
steep4me said on October 27th, 2009
This route is very fun and would be a good warm up if it had perma-draws on it. I think doing a no-hands in the hueco would lower the grade. If you just climb it without sitting in the hueco, I think it is a soft 12a. As a short person, it has two pretty long reaches on it, which adds to the difficulty. Regular-sized people would not notice this and probably grade it easier.

actually getting to the hueco rest would add two grades. yes, two (2). grades (a-d).

just trolling. but the moves to get into the sit-down did look prohibitively hard...

This is a great route, like the others on this section of wall. The route seems short and resty enough to make going to the hueco unnecessary.
Willy said on May 27th, 2014
12a? Seriously? Felt like 11b relative to Ale8. Very easy to get a no hands rest in the heuco and you can reach over and clip the bolt from where you're standing. Cool horizontal pinches
lagricola said on June 19th, 2017
climbed it using the hueco rest. definitely felt soft, but I'd also say that the hardest move was getting into the hueco.

Lol to these last two characters. No one uses the hueco, which is clearly off. C'mon now. I will say, though, that this route is solid 12a, despite having a reputation for being soft. IF you're a committed lode bro/broette then, yeah, of course it feels easy. But I've seen lots of people get stomped on this over the years.
