A No.1 perfected the hobo symbols system and was regarded as the "King of the Hoboes." This route climbs the slabby wall across the dry pond from Volt and Southern Exposure.
A No.1 features three unique cruxes separated by a couple ledges that you could sit on to eat a can of beans.
This route was a collaboration of many locals determined to climb this lichen encrusted wall.

Great route! A bit harder if you are short through the lower crux...

The lower crux seemed very height dependent to me and the climb overall seemed a fair bit harder then 5.11a, but I'm only 5'8 so that might have something to do with it.

I agree David. I always felt that move alone is more like solid 11. I changed my grade to 11b, which remains weighted.
