Nice flowing moves with a roof crux near the top. May feel a bit spicy for some but hang in there, the holds are big. After the roof trend left because there's some perma-dirt and possibly damp rock up there.

I think this is a tad sand bagged at 10b. Not hard to get flash pumped if this is your warm up.

the last bolt to the chains will stay wet after a rain....

This used to be 10b????
Spikeddem said on October 1st, 2013
There's a huge rock that may or may not trundle on down one day after enough use. It'll probably kill the belayer if they're not off to the left. It's above the fourth (I think) bolt. There's a 2 mm-wide crack that runs for about a foot and a half to the right through it. The crack flexes when the left end of the block is used. Just a heads up.

spike, could you have pulled it off wihtout hurting anyone? or mark it with an "x"?
Spikeddem said on October 2nd, 2013
I gave it some good kicks in climbing boots, but I think I'd have to be in regular shoes. Even then I don't know if it'd go. I think it's more of just something to keep an eye on. It's worth an X, I didn't have block chalk to mark it.

Didn't notice bad rock around the 4th bolt, but broke off a big (non-chalked) chunk of a handhold in the scooped-out section right below the roof. Everything but the tick-marked holds is really crumbly in that area. I am guessing that the scoop-out section under the roof will look much more blank very soon.
lena_chita said on October 16th, 2013
The moves from scoop to the roof are really memorable though. Not just left hand/right hand jughaul. Definitely something you would remember.

Nice warm up

Totalled enjoyable. Can be slightly damp at the top if you see water running off to the right, but does't really affect the last few moves of the climb much.

Even with the damp holds at the top, I thought this was a great rout with good rock quality

This one climbs nice. Loved it. Felt easier than its sandbagged little brother - the 10c to the left.

A little more exciting clipping the anchors than I thought necessary. Overall a great climb
Daeris said on February 20th, 2017
Catawaba, I think I just climbed the route you're talking about. Clipping those anchors from the mini-hueco up top was probably one of the most sketch anchors I've had to clip. I'm honestly not sure if it was this route though. I think it may have been in between Where the Sidewalk Ends, and Shake Down. Are you certain it was this route?
Catawaba said on February 20th, 2017
I'm pretty sure it was this route based on the photos in the guidebook the starts seemed to match up. I agree clipping the anchors was pretty sketch, not a big fan
