3 out of 5 stars thin

Thin climb, not the best 11 at seismic but worth climbing

3 out of 5 stars What's with all the "cake" comments?

just go for the set of crimps and edges while staying off the Seismic Step to the left, then hold on for dear life as you ascend! or something like that. Not as bad as I recalled it from long ago. Not as hard as the cruxes on the other 11s.

4 out of 5 stars It's all about the first few moves

Make sure your belayer is watching you at the bottom. After the first section it's cake.

4 out of 5 stars Too Soft

A bit easier than 11b even if you completely stay out of seismic step.
