This southwest facing route, located about 75' south of the other Rollerball formation climbs, was originally rated 10d. However, key holds have broken off, rendering the route an "11."
Begin under a steep face beneath the first of three bolts. Use discontinuous seams, edges, and horizontals enroute to the anchors. Very good climb, 3 out of 5 stars.
QD's for three bolts and small camming units for discontinuous seams / horizontals. Two bolt rap anchor is at top.

Even if originally rated 10d, it was hard then and we thought it was harder.

Does anyone know when the key holds broke off? I climbed this in about '95 or so and it seemed like 5.11 even back then. Good climb anyway.
