To me, Big Daddy feels like a real step up from the 12a's on the wall...gray or yellow alien (or similar sized piece) just around the roof in the blind lock and much finger sized gear after in the crack above.

Hard for me to accurately grade this guy, onsighted it and Sentry box same day, both felt easy. Came back a year later, took a nice 40 footer off the top of Sentry Box and then hiked this thing, felt 11c/d. I think if you have power it'll feel easier than most 12bs, it has perfect locks even for my fat fingers, just a little steep.

Crux is very short, great rest right before it and decent rest right after it, maybe 5 moves long, not very sustained.

Don't listen to Scott, he hikes 5.13 and then takes all the women home with him. A true stone cold crusher. ; )
