4 out of 5 stars Ringbearer

Fun roof route with ample rest opportunities if you can find them. I missed the onsight because I fell for a sucker hold that well, sucked! Other people seem to say similar things about pump and figuring out beta.

Even though I had to come back and send this I'm not sure it felt 11a. Compared the face and roof to other routes with similar aspects and can't say it's on par with any of them. I think Dave's Not Here is harder, John.

4 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised

Did this a while back and didn't realize it's an 5.11a. Awesome! With that said, very sustained, feel-around climb. Less-than-ideal protection between second and third bolt...took a healthy whipper on this guy.

4 out of 5 stars Cool Route

Fun climb, took a little while to figure out, almost pumped out figuring out what to do.

4 out of 5 stars great climb... bad anchor locations

watch the rope getting caught in a crack when lowering. Left anchor should be moved right of the right anchor or both down lower to the right. That would eliminate the bad rope drag and also it feeding into the crack.

3 out of 5 stars fun pulling the bulge at the end

good route, burned some energy working out the beta, but had enough left to pull the bulge. Permadraws were a little hard to clip, so not sure the purpose of having them there. Fun route.

5 out of 5 stars great roof pull; nice low tufas

Beta spoiler: for 11a you'll have to take the rest under the roof, double knee bar. You might take it twice, going up to clip and retreating so that the roof pull isn't interrupted by clipping. Originally considered 11b. Is Dave's downgrade valid? We collected no opinions.
