Butterfly Crack

I heard there's a new park service sign there saying this route is .11a. Actually it is every bit of .11c, and getting harder over the years as the dirt at the base erodes making the opening crux moves reachier.

Re: Butterfly Crack

Hi Kris, I totally believe you. If you say it's 11c, it's 11c. I have not been able to climb anything that hard for many years, but even when I thought I wasn't that bad I couldn't touch that climb. You know I'm short and I couldn't reach the initial finger locks, and as you know the crux is right off the ground. I'll change the info on my page.
