Pulling around that corner/ roof is surprisingly burly.

some super impressive ground-up gardening on the FA by the krampster on this one...

Climbed this again yesterday. Pulling that roof puts this route at 10b. I guess 9+ if you are willing to add the fine print (old school grade). It is way more difficult than any move on the 5.10 sport route at right.

not in the ballpark of 5.9+

When did this one get bumped up to 10b? Don't listen to caribe...

Sorry Art but that's not what I remember 5.10b feeling like.

Glad to see you dusting off the springy thingies

The roof down low is the money move, after that it's easy peasy.. You'll want something large higher up.. chimney is easy but most people will want some protection.
