5 out of 5 stars Hot

Climbed this route when it was way too hot. First pitch felt way greasy with hands dripping sweat. Offwidhts are really soft for the grades.

5 out of 5 stars brutal

We didn't do the upper flare. I led the thin hands, my partner the 150 ft OW. I noticed a lot of red meat on the edges following.

The thin hands is soft if you are good at it.

I followed most of this route but thought it was stellar. I followed the 11D hands clean which means it ain't bad. The 11a OW is easier than generator crack. Still, this climb will beat on you if you are mortal like me.

Awesome route,the 1st pitch is one of the best in the valley and the off width pitches are great too!
