Comments: In the King Climber Book they have it as a 10D. I agree with the rating as none of the moves felt 11ish to me. Best part is that none of the moves are reachy at all (I'm 5ft 5in w/-3 ape index) . There were no one crux per se but a series of bulges that that the climber have to figure out how to pull. Super, super fun and I found it to be really enjoyable cruise.

Comments: I did this route back in June by accident thinking it was Charity Case. I kept thinking it was Charity Case because every time things got hard a little traverse to the right (about a body length on ledges) of the bolt line seem to make it significantly easier. I never thought I was doing a 10 at all. My second, on the other hand, had all kinds of troubles as he tried a few moves straight up.

Comments: So I found the need to to a campus move to start the route (I'm 5ft 5in) to some polished holds brings it up to solid V1+/V2/10B territory for the first move, then 5.9/5.8 afterwards. My wife doesn't have the upper body strength to make the pull and she's 5ft 2in and needed a boost for the first move. I let a 20 yr old swedish kid who's about 6ft 2in top roping the route and he had problem w/the first move.

Afterwards it's a very nice climb! Nice blind search for a hand hold above an overhan... more >>

Comments: Great climb - it's harder than it looks because of the slight overhang that makes the traverse more tricky and needed more power (ie core strength) than I thought from the ground. It's all there though and not tricky - the top crux didn't feel crux-y to me as I flowed right through to the clipping hold at the top - they are bigger than they seem from below. The clipping hold is big and quite comfortable.

I convinced my wife to try it on top rope and without the upper body and core strength ... more >>
