Description:

Starts just left of the trail, climbs through a bulge, and shares its last 2 bolts with Birthday Suit. "Officially" rated 5.11d if you pass the 2nd and 3rd bolts through the center of your body. Moving slightly left (about 2') at the second bolt reduces the grade to 5.11a, as drawn on Rossiter's guide book topo.

4 out of 5 stars slab with a couple of technical moves

thin around bolt #2... i didn't do the contrived 11d (since i didn't know about it, for one). felt more like 10d type moves.

They're all there. You'll just have to trust me. Pretty spectacular sequence.

I did the wimpy 11a variation by moving slightly left at the 2nd bolt. Maybe someday I'll figure out how to do the direct 11d moves.
