We were glad to stumble upon these corridor routes on a hot day. At least 10 degrees cooler than "out there".

This climb feels so good thanks to that lil' nook. Kudos to whoever put the rebar in the cooridor... no more sketchy rope ladder

I have climbed enough above 10C to qualify, and after pkananen sent I hopped on it. The concensus in our group was 10b/c. Sorry if this is your best send or whatever.

I can only guess that the folks thinking this is an 11 are doing a direct start beneath the first bolt. If you take the path of least resistance it is 5.10.

path of least resistance? do you mean starting on the bear? even if you factor in the "direct start" it's 10d at best.
