The best route on this wall, this technical outing is much more sustained than the rest of the others here.

A slabby start on thin edges leads into the crux just past the 1st bolt as you highstep onto an edge, higher easy moves gain some jugs at the 3rd bolt which are followed up and right slightly to a vertical face finish with slopers and edges.

Maybe I was "off route" by following the bolt line straight up, but this felt a lot harder than 5.10a... Very thin edges at the bottom.

Really thin edges past the first bolt, then some balancy moves from third bolt to anchors. Favorite on the wall, but very sustained

Very sustained right from the start with lots of good moves, significantly burlier than the other routes on the wall.

After doing a bunch of the 10a's in the area, this is WAY harder. I gave it a 10+ rating. I bailed on it this time. You're welcome to my bail 'biner. If you're expecting something in the easy/moderate 10 range, be ready for a fight. Thin!
