Comments: I flashed the top pitch yesterday. I don't think any of the moves were 12a, but really fun sustained 11+ climbing. Glad I had Sky's beta. It would've been a hard onsight.

Comments: Stellar climbing.

Sky lead the first pitch following the right angling twin cracks. It was awkward climbing following. Expect 5.10 slab moves as said.

I lead stellar second pitch. My opinion is: NOT 5.11 thin face climbing. STRAIGHT UP 5.11 slab climbing. If you know what you're getting into then just super fun climbing. 2nd to 3rd bolt is far but it's a clean fall if you fall. If you got to the 2nd bolt then you're kind of rewarded with small finger holds thereafter, and if you weren't freak... more >>

Comments: Awesome awesome climb. Did it yesterday (31 Oct). We didn't see a stopper on the first 11d pitch. Very hard start off the ground! We linked p1 and p2. My partner climbed the ear and we brought a 9" cam with us and it protected the offwidth quite well. What an exhilarating summit.

Comments: The start was definitely cruxy but the rest of the first pitch was stellar. The second pitch was very hard in the squeeze chimney into roof section. The rock had hardly any friction and lots of chunks broke off as I tried to climb the hand crack roof using some face holds for feet and hand. My first experience with bad sandstone climbing.

Comments: I was surprised by the amount of bolts as well. This was my last climb of the day after leading a bunch of hard things so maybe my rating of 11b is biased with tiredness. I skipped the last bolt since I had no energy left to clip something that is so close to the top anyway.

Comments: I tried climbing the route without using the arete completely, but that would make the top waaaaaaaaay harder than an 11c. So I second everyone's opinion and think that you can grab the arete near the top for one move as part of Double Vision.

Comments: This is a real 12a. My third 12a lead ever and I can say that there are no more excuses like 'that was a soft 12a'. There's nothing soft about Face Off and the string of crux moves are suuuuuuper fun - don't stop, keep moving. Definitely harder and more sustained than Monsterpiece Theater.

Comments: Super fun jugs with them disappearing for a few moves at the top.

I'd say most moves aren't more difficult than 11b, but string all of them together for a long overhanging route and you get a 11d/12a enduro climb.

Comments: The beginning is tricky and never really liked it, but the second crux is fun. Once you figure out how to mantel onto the ledge the move is not so bad, just super strenuous.
