Comments: I can't believe you are all bad-mouthing the guidebook author in a public forum. Are you aware that he is a publishing magnate and guidebook impresario?

Comments: Found this a very difficult onsight before getting warmed up. A second lap at the end of the day felt infinitely easier, but still harder than 10a.

Comments: Climbed it with difficulty at 5'6". 5'8' and 5'10" climbers used the exact same beta but had a noticeably easier time.
