I found this route harder than 11a. If you compare it to other routes in the curves like high dive or black monday it feels more like at least 11b. While it is short it will have you scratching your head looking for the better holds. It's like a v3 or a v4 high ball boulder problem. Make sure you have an attentive belayer since a fall before the 2nd bolt could lead to a nasty landing in some sharp rocks below.

You can easily reach from the adjacent rock and pre clip the first clip. Cruxy at the beginning and end. Loved the start for its technical personality. The feet are there so go for it.
