This climb felt more like 5.10 to me...
I would only recommend it if you are camping in Group Site #5 and don't want to leave camp...

10a to the first bolt, then some 10b or 10c moves to the second. Would be a spicy lead!

^ definitely a spicy lead! Marginal smears on this thing, had me getting sweaty. So psyched to get to that 2nd bolt, past that things eased up considerably. I thought it felt like a 10c or d to me.
