Description:

It is long route left of Finger Ripping Good. I believe this is the best route in Pillars of Pain area! I would give 3 star rating. Marty Karabin originally rated this route 11c, but down graded to 11b. I was on it last weekend, and I would say 11c should stand (I may even say 11d or 12a).

5 out of 5 stars It is little bit harder now.

Probably like 11d. Fun route. One of the best route in Magma Garden area. Definitely worthy route. Hard to climb when your fingers are numb.

Technical and sustained. It's the kind of thing you have to earn, not a freebie.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Total Bobpoint. I think I can get it. It was really cold, and my fingers were really freezing. Holly gave me great beta as usual. 4th clip isn't as hard as before!
