That wasn't the easiest 10a I ever done. Almost lost my nerves on that last move.

I took a fall from the anchors a long time ago and fell down about 3 feet past the first bolt. I was about 10 feet off the ground I believe. Fun route but I would say its 10b/c all the way!

Felt hard for a 10a.

fun but kind of tough for 10a. Purhaps it was all the chalk on the wall that distracted me away from the good holds. I took a good fall on it, glad it's an overhang.

This was probably one of the harder 10a's I've ever climbed. I found it very beta intensive... lots of safe whips off the wall.

i agree that it is hard and a little heady, definitely not 10a. Beyond that it is a really fun route with plenty of the steep sequential pocket pulling the red is known for. worth it if you are over there.

i'd say about 10c as well. i made some rather long moves on this thing, but you do get a great rest before the top.
