5 out of 5 stars Softest 11 at Shelf

If overhanging 5.9 moves add up to 11a then apparently I don't understand how climbing grades work. If you've got a shred of endurance this will be an easy tick. No move is harder than 5.10a. A little overbolted as I skipped one on accident. Super fun climbing on big jugs.

3 out of 5 stars Maybe a little soft for the grade...

... but superb climbing from beginning to end.

4 out of 5 stars Fun!

Not hard for the grade, but I did it as a last climb of the day, so I was a little pumped. Onsighted it, though.

5 out of 5 stars wonderful route

Nice flow-y sustained climbing. If you can't keep your weight on your feet it might get pretty pumpy.

5 out of 5 stars Really fun route

No hard moves, but fairly pumpy.
I thought there would be a rest after the flake, but once it gets steep it's pretty sustained to the anchors.
