Yes, 5.11c in the desert is hard, but they say that the hard parts are easily clean-aided. Stewart Green rates it as 5.9 C1.
Good luck with climbing.

Liba, your photography skills seem to be
getting better, like a fine wine over time.

The Gossip on the left is looking up at something. Perhaps an alien spacecraft ??

Larry, it was a super windy and dusty day. You could feel the sand getting into your lungs, eyes, everywhere...
