First was over a year ago. This route really is one of the few routes I would give more than 5 stars if it were possible. A variety of different holds and moves keeps things interesting, what seems like a pumpfest can be made easier with good footwork, but even so it's called Crankenstien for a reason. As for the grade, I'd call it solid 11c. Considering that I don't remember any beta from when I got on it last year, today I essentially flashed it, after watching my buddy go up, and as much as I'd love an ego stroking I just don't flash 11d. Nevertheless this is a particularly excellent route.
