bolted with the future mother of my daughter and my wife :)
We originally had this so dialed that we thought it would be 5.10d out on the left arete up tiny little finger tip features. A few people falling on that traverse out left of this jack-hammered the holds we used trying to get back on route from their fall made this a little more fingery and harder. I also thought that pulling the right side right up the finger seam and to a small block would be 5.12a, but I managed it with less effort than those early days on it back in 2008.
Several people have tried to send this line only to be shut down by the tiny features. 5.11c is my best guess and compromise for whichever direction you choose to send it.
