4 out of 5 stars Not at all a 5.11

At most this is a 5.10a- but I've got to give it a 5.9.

Precariously loose boulders just above and right of the first 3 extremely close bolts. Careful. Place a cam in the cracks on the left when you get to the hands free rest above the 1st 3 bolts.

3 out of 5 stars Anonymous Flake Direct

Have to agree that this route was at the most a 5.9 with maybe a PG13 fall rating. Onsighted it using 2 bolts on the route- one below and one above the undercling flake (beware there are 2 side by side at about 40 feet, one of which on the right whose hanger is spinning) and slinging natural protection. Most fun climb of the day though there at Buzzard Rocks. The views are spectacular.
