This climb can be done three different ways, each with a slightly different grade. When climbed from the bottom, its shares the start with “Tricks” but then breaks off left immediately after the initial overhang. If one then follows the bolts directly up, without stepping left off the climb (on “Footloose”) to rest, the climb is an honest 5.11a. If you take this same route, but step off the climb to rest (about a third of the way up), the climb is about 10d. The other variation is to climb the first half of “Footloose”, past its crux and then step right and climb the upper 2/3 of “All Chalk”. This brings the grade down to 10c. Either variation is fun – the climb is generally consistently thin and crimpy. (10d/11a variation - E. Hoogstraten, 1992; 10c variation, D. Diduck, 1991)

4 out of 5 stars Crimpy

From bottom to top without stepping off the climb is certainly solid 11a!
