Neil Anderson gets ready to clip 3rd bolt


Thin moves on the lower part, crux is around the 2nd/3rd bolt. Squeezing the Lemmon says 5.9, but there was a discussion once with the consensus being more like 5.10. Fun face climb.

If you're a .9 climber I'm thinking you may be at your limit on that start. Technical and committing moves to get started; afterwards might soften to the .9 range.

5 bolts to chain anchors.

I think its 5.10. Definitely the hardest route on this wall, by quite a bit. The no-feet-smearfest, pressing up against upside-down crimpers, body tension, one finger crystal crimping, starting bulge is the crux, then it becomes a 5.8+/9 crimp-fest like the rest of the routes on this wall and eventually ledges out near the top. Its amazing when you are thankful you finally reached a 1/4" edge "jug". Sustained. An awesome route.

Feels like a stiff 5.9, don't think it's quite in the 5.10 territory

Tricky start, fun .9 climbing after that.
