3 out of 5 stars first bolt and start appears to have moved right 10 feet

The first bolt was clearly moved right 8-10 feet as evidenced by the old naked bolt out left of the existing first bolt. After working this route out with moves right of the first bolt cutting back over the top of it to holds just left and under bolt 2, it clearly is not the 11b it may have once been. Slab climbing is my specialty, however the crux section felt more like 11d in my experience with thin holds, thin feet and lots of core balance. Once over #2 the climb is more like a 5.9 or so. Heck, even getting off the deck to clip #1 and move beyond it wasn't easy.

4 out of 5 stars .

Hard at first, but once you find a key hold at the crux its much easier.
