This is a great slab climb squeezed between the Fatty Bolger 11a slab and an obvious arete on the right. This climb should be graded harder than an 11a simply because of the bulge at the top of the route. I have found this section to more like an 11d, granted it is only one move but its a really hard one!

You can walk off or get lowered back down.

4 out of 5 stars TR Clean till the hard bulge at the top!

Great climbing but hard move maybe 11d at the top in getting over the bulge. I need to go back and work on it some more.
