Set up TR by climbing one of the other routes on the pillar. The route is directly up the middle of the outward-facing side of the pillar, between Arete I and Can He Share?. I've only seen one person finish it; he confirmed the grade at 5.11a.

I would say it's definitely not 5.11a... I mean, laybacks on crimpers, overhanging face, no good feet on hard moves... come on... this is way harder than 'The land of the lost' (5.11b) nearby. Although it's superfun climb
