Eric tastes First Blood

Description 

Multiple cruxes throughout the route with great rests, culminating with a sick undercling to a slopey right hand move passing the ninth bolt, one more gas move passing the tenth bolt (previous anchors), then slab climbing on amazing black rock to the anchors...a MC classic on bullet proof rock, hard to beat. Fourth route from the left.

11 bolts

This was listed in the old guide as 12b to the original anchor below the black rock. My opinion is 12c with or without the extension. Also note that the 'extension' is now the only route - the old anchors were removed. This applies to all the routes here that received extensions. Some of them got much harder so do not rely on the old guide grades.
