3 out of 5 stars Ant Encounters

Don't remember much about this one except that the bottom was crimpy.

4 out of 5 stars Quality

First 5.11 flash. Great movement at bottom, juggy midsection and crimpy finish.

3 out of 5 stars .

This probably is only 10d rather than 11a, however having said that a number of 11a's in the park need to get downgraded.

Thin at the top. The bottom is a little tricky.

5 out of 5 stars tricky top, great route, rating isn't accurate

Like Karl says, easier than War on Rugs. Annette & Collette agree it's below 11a. Also easier than Wife. I made the clip before the crux and retreated to the good rest.
