Ten Pin 5.10 (Sport) **

First Ascent: Jared Hancock. Karla Hancock in 2020
Length: 40ft
Bolts: 4 (report bad bolts/anchors)

The crux is getting off the ground (may be easier for taller climbers or difficult for shorter climbers). Long lock-offs on decent edges, but thin feet left of the first bolt is the easier start. A bouldery 5.11ish start on the slopey right facing left-leaning dihedral/flake feature to the right of the first bolt adds difficulty to the route. After the 1st bolt the climbing eases to 5.8 or 5.9 on good edges and pockets to a juggy ledge at the top.

Fun climb, but I don’t see any start option that is 5.10. I used the right side flake feature, which is a fun move in the 5.11 range.
