3 out of 5 stars Elvin Beauty

Ok climb. Not really my style. I've seen this done easy ways and hard ways. Depends on where you think the line goes and what you consider "on route".

3 out of 5 stars not straightforward after the 3rd bolt

it's pretty easy climbing up jugs through the 3rd bolt, but then the wall of nothingness replaces the jugs and you have to either use the fingerpads or go way out left to high clip the 4th bolt, then traverse out right and use a too low hold with no feet or out left with the same description or just keep heading up the wall past the anchors out high right, after which the anchors are quite low for clipping once sufficient hand holds are gained and feet are perches on decent features.

It's a fun puzzle, but may may not be for the faint at heart.

4 out of 5 stars seemed really hard for a 10.c

Hate to ask this but did a hold used to clip break off to the right of the 4th bolt? the 4th bolt seemed to be a very hard and very high clip from a crappy, low left hand 2 finger tips sidepull crimp for a 10c. maybe I'm just getting old but the traverse to the right (after clipping) to pull the roof seemed about 10c/d but the clip at the 4th bolt seemed much harder than the clips on the 11a/bs on the Moss Wall to the left.

if the hold broke and the grade is upped into the 11's then its a great climb, if a hold did not break its much harder than 10c

5 out of 5 stars pretty line

besides the cave route, it's the prettiest line at the wall. I'm always pretty pumped at the anchors. Two guys thought 10a of all things. One 10c. I got talked down from an original estimate of 10d or 11a. It gets alot of traffic so let's build a better consensus.
