This is a fun route with a hold about 3/4 of the way up that is a broken cobble, sharp as a tomato slicer.


this route is to the right of the 10d warmup route

The broken off cobble is not so sharp.

The climbing is harder than it looks like it is going to be through the start of the route, the holds are mostly flat but not many are incut. There is an OK rest before the final little bulge and headwall, which is a good thing since that is the crux. Looks possible to go either left or right of the bolts, I went left on sidepulls.
