3 out of 5 stars tall folks

might want to reach straight from side pull to the left hand jug under the ledge. I find it easier than using the crimps.

3 out of 5 stars POLISH!

The starting move is quite a bit harder than it once was most likely since those tiny feet are polished down to a shine. Pretty straightforward route, and like any 11a at the new wall/great wall area it makes you work for it.

4 out of 5 stars short but fun

fun, interesting route, once you know the beta it feels easier than 11a; clip the 3rd bolt from the good hold just below the ledge--not the lower holds.

4 out of 5 stars Balance

This route is pretty cool. Without beta it can duff stronger climbers up. It's all about proper feet to maintain good balance. Clip the 3rd bolt from above to save some energy. The top has good holds, but some are dusty and there's a bit of run-out to the last piton if you are getting pumped.

Walk over and clip the chains to top rope Buddha
