For some reason this felt harder than Toe Tag (10b) at the Morgue, which I did on the same day, specifically the switching corner at the top. I would have said that this is closer to Brontosaurus in difficulty.

Looks like Brontosaurus but climbs very different. Also, Brontosaurus has a very defined crux. This thing is fairly consistent in difficulty, start to finish, even as the moves change styles. You might want more than doubles on BD #1-#4.

Sustained moves with a solid rest to catch your breath halfway up. This thing eats #3s, bring more than doubles. The changing corner section is awesome! Not a gimmie at the grade.
