This route is 9+ not 5.10. Mt. Lemmon needs to maintain a standard here. Don't soft grade please. And yes, I've led this climb.
If you don't believe me, then climb Yosemite or J-treecrack routes.
This route is NOT 5.10.
Not trying to be a jerk, sorry.

That's because there was no such thing as 9+ in yosemite. The YDS went to 5.9 and only used a,b,c,d upon reaching 5.10 Check out an old yosemite guide book. Personally, I think +- thing below 5.10 is a bit whack.That's about all I got on that,
