Comments: Alright then it's settled: Peanut Man II, 5.15a. If you guys wouldn't mind informing all the appropriate media outlets, it would really save me a hassle.

Comments: just before the real crux starts. from the last big jug in the quartzite section, you make a big reach with the right hand past a little crackcrimp up to this pretty good pinch, and from there you locked off with the right hand to reach another left hand crimp before stabbing into the underclimb. That right hand (which was also a good foothold) is no longer a good crimp with a thumb catch, and is now a kind of crappy gaston sloper that you grab to make the lockoff.

Comments: this recently broke (october 18, 2010, i think). I recovered the broken piece and did what might possibly be the first post-break ascent. WIthout any knowledge of whether or not this is warranted, I am renaming it Peanut Man II, and calling it 15a.

in all seriousness, this may be 12a now. kind of a bummer that the hold broke.

Comments: I admit that this felt a lot harder beta-less, and it felt considerably easier once i figured out some body-positioning stuff.

HOWEVER! I think that calling this 5.12a is probably a little bit off. There is undoubtedly some integrity in maintaing an anti-inflationary perespective. Still, for your average sport climber waltzing up to an unknown cliff, they might be surprised at the difficulty of this "12a".

I propose a new grading system. A route is given a grade, and a certain number of winks... more >>

Comments: Significantly harder than dog father. Comparable in my mind to little red hen, or maybe i'm just a bad slab climber.

Comments: The crux up top is so fun, it's almost stupid. Definitely a significant step up from apollo. I'd say around 12c to a steep rest, to a V4/5, though low percentage.

Comments: So good it's almost unreal. There are a whole handful of ways to do the bottom crux, fun and juggy climbing to a difficult top section, and then hero jugs to the top. If you climb anywhere from 5.12 to 5.15 you should probably get on this route
