3 out of 5 stars good climb

I projected this thing for months, then eventually gave up on it. Finally came back to it. It's actually a pretty sweet climb.

3 out of 5 stars little bit sketchy...

... but I'm a wuss. The "crux" was easier for me than getting to the 3rd bolt.

3 out of 5 stars need beta

The way I went up felt off route and certainly not 11a, but couldn't figure out any other way. Confused.

2 out of 5 stars short and easy

Not sure it deserves the 11a grade... hard to judge.

A couple of big throws, get to cut feet, is fun.

4 out of 5 stars really fun

Beta spoiler warning...

If you find the "normal" beta for this climb difficult, try this: Hit the crux "sloper" with your left hand, finding the decent edge/lip on it. Left foot on a little nub, then stand into the right hand jug way high.

The key is not trying to get both hands on the sloper; the lip/edge is big enough for only one hand anyway. I'm 5'7"ish and this was *a lot* easier for me.

2 out of 5 stars burly crux

I'm sure there is a better way, but the crux involves a partial one armed pull up (on the left hand pinch)? Pretty rough. Also, the route has its own chains now. Climb right out of the cave instead of left. Clipping the last bolt is scary.
