I would say the crux is from the last bolt to the anchors. You have to watch out for the tree branch high on the route. I would say that the rating is height dependent 10c if your taller 10d for the vertically challenged.


this route is located at the right end of Gorgeous up the hill from the main wall, there is one more route to the right of this one


6 bolts to 2 Mussy hooks

The route probably goes at 5.10c if you stay right of the bolt line from the last bolt to the anchor. It looks to me like there is a more direct sequence honoring the bolt line, but would probably be a 5.11a move and a bit more committing with the tree below you. I'd probably try it on top rope a couple of times to see if those holds are good before leading it with that finish, otherwise, a fun new route not too dirty and most of the holds are bomber pockets.

The branch near the climb snapped (#2015drought) so it is definitely no longer an issue.
