Bonsai, 5.10.

Description 

This is a long and enjoyable outing with a tricky crux at about 1/3 height. If it feels harder than 10a, you likely got the tricky sequence wrong.


Location 

This is ~75 feet up river from the knotted rope. The start is easy to find- it is a low angle slab/separate block with a Fixe SS bolt so low it could practically be clipped from the ground with an easy runout to bolt #2 above.


Protection 

Draws.

This is a great, well protected route with a tricky crux sequence... onsighting it was substantially harder than onsighting Vertical Alluvium, so I'd say 5.10+ if you don't have the beta wired.

Totally agree w/ Dylan, this is a bit harder than Vertical Alluvium and pretty sequential through the crux. The top half is just plain brilliant fun.
