4 out of 5 stars Wife in the Fast Lane

This is a pretty fun one. There is a boulder start and a ground start and both are fun. If you do the ground start, clip bolt 1 from the boulder first.

4 out of 5 stars From the ground

Which the guidebook says is 11a. Felt fairly appropriate. Not really super difficult climbing but a few tough moves and rather pumpy the whole time.

4 out of 5 stars Really fun climb.

I've been on this a couple of times as an after-thought at the end of the day, but finally gave it a real shot for the send. I'm with the previous poster that suggests an 11a grade from the ground. The boulder problem to start this sucker, plus the ever-increasing pump towards the top makes this an 11a in my book (on par with Blowing Smoke at the Monkey). Definitely 10d if you skip the boulder problem though.

3 out of 5 stars good climb

I projected this thing for months, then eventually gave up on it. Finally came back to it. It's actually a pretty sweet climb.
