3 out of 5 stars not a 5.11

the first half of the climb is easy (5.5) as long as the rock doesn't disintegrate under your hands and feet (belayer beware).
the next 1/4 is decent (10a?). the last 10 feet - the crack variation - is the hardest part. and it is hard for me at times, but i would never give it more than a 10c.

3 out of 5 stars Not a 5.11 in the least

I'm 5'6" and the last move which is the hardest especially for short people is not a 5.11. at the most a 5.10c/d because taller people can finesse it with ease but shorter people just have to spend a little more time to grab that monster last hold to head over the top but it doesn't put it into 5.11 range.
