To this climber, 4 Those About 2 Rock is not a hair easier than 5.10d, but certainly not 5.11a. If you have only led a handful of 5.10a trad routes and saw this thing rated 5.10b/c in a guidebook, you might get lured in to a true epic of exhaustion. Perhaps it's not helpful to mince grades, but I thought this line fairly pumpy, with a section or two that required technical prowess. Definitely hard 5.10.
The easy 5th class top-out is a true victory finish. Awesome, awesome route. An absolute MUST DO at the crag.
