Climbs the beautiful short corner to the right of Gambit. Fun stemming up the corner leads to the off-balance fat fingers crux pulling the overhang above. (Note: we originally rated the crux .11-, but Toula downrated it in his guidebook. Having repeated it several times over the years, I'm not totally sure the downrating is accurate).
Mostly smaller cams, #1 Friends or purple Camalots for the crux.

I agree with Larry, call it a soft 11 if you want.
Tim had a tendency to down rate stuff.
His ratings come more from a repeat ascent, sport mentality than an on sight one.
This is an excellent stiff climb.
The top gets right in your face.
