Comments: I think the more time I've spent on this climb, the more I've come to enjoy it. There are some really interesting sequences that become a lot easier once you suss out the beta. The route is fairly sustained and despite looking fairly steep at the crux, is mostly a challenge of endurance and dealing with tenuous balance-testing positions.

A Broughton classic in my book for sure.

Here are just a few things that go into this:

Comments: Warning! Moderate spoilers may follow...

On P1, A runner on the bolt before the crux bolt (the crux bolt being the one protecting the short traverse under the roof) will definitely help reduce rope drag. The same goes for the cam placement after the crux; I believe there is also a spot for a .5 c4 a bit higher than where the .3 (or #2 c3) would go.

I submit that this is the best 5.10 at Broughton. Feel free to disagree and a lively discussion thread shall ensue :)
