βeta: Another great route on this wall, probably is 7b for the onsight unless you've recently done Space Race.Yet another crackin knee bar rest too. Has a sting in the tail.

βeta: Felt 7b to me. Long and pumpy with some fantastic moves, not as technial as the shorter routes on the right, but it makes up for it with it's length and sustained nature.

βeta: I always thought it was called Face Race. I might be mistaken but I am sure I was climbing on it back in 93/94.

βeta: When I did it a few years ago, and it took me a few attempts, I thought 7a+. However that was when we all thought Yosemite Wall was a standard 7a, but there is now a feeling that that is 7a+. If thats the case I feel that most of the shorter, old 7a routes on the right side of the catwalk are technically much harder than both these routes. Dave

βeta: Is this really 7b, similar to Yosemite Wall in difficulty, less pumpy but more techinal and seemed more than a half grade easier than Space Race to me. Great route anyway with an exiting section through the bulges.
