He BP I just found this thread. It is way more than Becky states. He says it is a variation , when in fact it is a 12 pitch independent route. He mentioned 5.11c, which is half true. The hardest pitches we lead ground up free where 11c but we toped roped several sections much harder. We did all the pitches "free"(some on tr) at 5.12b. Probably took aid (on lead) on 3 pitches over all.

So it has yet to see a free ascent.(Big Bone being thrown here). Go for it . I have topos of the whole thing and a vivid memory of it!!

 

As far as just the head wall. I believe the first pitch of it is .11b. The second .11c, and the third is .11d. The 12b is on the pillar below the headwall.
