Description 

Getting over the rooof is the crux, This climb is a must do for an 11 climber, fun with big moves on big holds. Short and can be pumpy


Location 

Above the waterfall and damn thing. Just right of smokin guns and left of shark attack. This area is in the back by the wall.


Protection 

4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor, make sure you have someone follow and clean otherwise its very hard to get your draws from under the roof.

As an added bonus... the 3rd bolt is a spinner.

pretty fun climbing, but hard on the fingertips!

This is a route that was origionally rated 11a, but never really was. Even before the upper foot ledge broke in January of 2010 it was never easier then 11c, now it feels like 12a. The consequences of falling before the 1st bolt would not be pretty- stick clip it (this would remove the R rating). The climbing to it can be done either 6' left or 6' right at the same difficulty.

I would definitely put this route as being stiffer than 11a. Once the beta was all figured out I would put this at around 11c. Super fun project with monster heels galore, careful about the belayer falling off the water-fall.

After having climbed "Smoking Guns" to the left, which goes at .11c for the area, I would put this at .11+.
