Comments: Burly!

I think it is harder than .11a due to the pod, but who am I? Not an offwidth climber, that's for sure!

Comments: Really fun / aesthetic slab route to do while you're waiting on other climbs to open up in the area. Not sure why I never see anyone on it.

I gave it an 'R' rating for the high first bolt and the back breaking boulder that you'd be falling towards if you goofed. Not sure about the nut placement as commented above, I've led this twice and any pro would be far left.

Comments: From the topo, it looks as though you need two ropes to rappel or am I missing something?

Cheers,

Comments: Are you guys using a 60m rope? This description says 85 ft which puts me in comfort range for rappelling. My guide book says 100 ft, which doesn't.
