a fun route with a hard crux and lots of easy climbing. crimps, slabby moves, a roof and much much more

I easily onsighted this in the pouring rain when I was just starting to climb 5.11s. There's no way it's 10d. At best it's 10a. It's a really great climb though and I definitely enjoyed the mini roof. I would give it 4 stars.

One very hard crimp move followed by 10a climbing.

10a is a sandbag for this route. 10d seems right. Not sure how someone breaking into 11's could do this in the rain and call it 5.10a Fun route regardless.

Definitely harder than the 10d to the right, especially in summer. It's still a super good route if you enjoy face climbing. It's too bad that it turns to giant jugs after the 4th bolt.

Not sustained but the crux is definitely a 10d crux at least. Probably 5.8/9 after the roof pull move. Loved the climb though
