The hardest line at trout! It has been rumored that Tommy Caldwell gave it a 5.13- rating. This is a step into hardcore crack climbing, with potential for some big airtime if you blow the crux. What an amazing route!

Anyone have a photo of this route?

Added a few photos to get YOU psyched Wally. As for the grade, it is definitely a step up in commitment compared other climbs of the same grade at Trout. Still in the same ballpark of difficulty though, and while TC hinted at a slightly harder grade, he thought 5.12+ was fair. Either way the gear is bomber and has been tested many times at the crux.

My only tid-bits to add:
The best line at Trout. Probably one of the best at the grade anywhere.
The whipper's not really that big. Just sideways. If they were bolts, you wouldn't think twice. Think 5.12 finger crack to V4 with a techy 5.11- finish.
Possibly the most perfectly named route in the world.
