I'd call it 14a for sure, the fitness required is a level I thought unreachable, unbelievable movement all the way.

Nice work Thomas... way to usher in the good weather!

Does anyone want to get in touch with Bill Ramsey and get his word on uprating this route? The comments and consensus seem to agree with 14a; I have no way of getting in touch with him, and he probably wouldn't know me if I did.

There are distinct cool moves on this route...but what I liked most was the overall flow. This routes flows so insanely well. There are a few MAJOR jugs that are so insanely fun to gain to the main head wall. Even the mantle down low into the no-hands rest is fun, distinct and cool! I found the hard move down low can be dumbed down with a left heel toe cam.
