Description:

Awesome start on a steep overhang. [I've downgraded from 11b (which was an upgrade from Kirk's original 10+) to 11a on the spread of opinions ranging 10c/d-11b and on a recent send by a new climber who'd not ever sent higher than 10c. Maybe he was in the zone. Having just done Prototype 10c, it's hard to imagine this is 10d.]

Pumpy fun climb, one of my favorites at North Shore. A must do! Too out of shape to onsight!

Sometimes getting up onto the ledge is the crux of this one! Fun mini roof on jugs. Don't blow the 4th clip (the 3rd one after you leave the ledge).

5 out of 5 stars *

Probably an 11a, could be height dependent. Really sweet route though. Totally deserves a 5 star rating!

5 out of 5 stars Onsight

So fun I could climb it all day long!

Easy to read the whole route from the ground, it's not very tricky which makes it seem easy, but I'd say 5.11-. It's just a little bit too tough for a 10d. 11a? 11b? hard to hash the difference.
