Description 

This route is located on the east face of Easter Rock just left of Knappweed Herbacide. Surrounded By Reality is the first route to pierce the big roof midway up the east face. Surprisingly, the big roof is not the crux, rather the A-frame below. The first part of the route is easy and still a bit dirty, but quickly improves as the rock gets steeper. Lurch up the sloper through the A-frame and get a good rest before the final big roof. The upper roof is not that bad, maybe 12a, but a bit awkward. I'm still not sure about the rating on the lower crux, maybe I missed a trick that would make it go easier. A 60m rope is definitely recommended for this route. A variation is in the works that will avoid the lower crux, but as of 8/5/02 it is not complete so avoid any tempting looking bolts to the left.

12 bolts.

12c sounds right. I took the right branch at the roof since there was chalk on it . I hope this was the right way.

The right branch is the correct way to do this route, the center roof is still a project with the bottom part coming up from the left, still in progress.
