Cali Brown on Division.
Rated 5.11d in the book, this route has suffered from the continuous demise of a "key" hold in the crux roof section, and is now, in my opinion, pretty solid 12a....especially for the area. Maybe I just don't climb it very often so it always feels hard.
Big jugs lead to a roof, which you climb around on the left side of the bolt, and the pump really just builds after that as you climb on slopey pockets and edges to the chains. Somewhat of a testpiece for the lower grades.
7 bolts and chains.
Located on the west-facing wall of this crag, Division is one route right of Struggling Man (5.12a). and just left of a prominent corner that contains the upper section of Les is More (5.10a) route.
The initial four bolts trend up and right.

I think a hold broke off just above the roof. May be a touch harder than 11d now.

Ratings are always subjective. However, yesterday I climbed both Isatoner Moaner (rated 12a/b) and Division. In my opinion Isatoner Moaner was significantly harder than Division. In fact, after I was roasted from Isatoner Moaner, I still had enough juice to climb Division twice.

This is a climb thats in your face the whole way. big reachy jugs on an overhanging wall makes you want to go as fast as possible. the movement is classic AF style. The crux is at the roof which is way rewarding. i tried it the hard way then found an easier way after 3 goes. after that roof its still balancy and hard when you are pumped. the end also has an easier and a harder way. it took me a while to figure it out. its a thinker. well protected. solid 12a in my book.

Division is such a satisfying climb! Start on easy big jugs up to a small roof. The crux would either be pulling the roof or the next few moves right afterward. Beautiful fall zone. As always in AF, polished feet through the crux so you're always about to pop. A hard climb, but not .12a just a tricky .11d

I had to climb fast through the lower section. I read about the roof being tough prior to trying, but had no problem with it. Decent holds all the way, kind of a devious sequence. So fun.
