The guidebook lists this as 5.9 but it seems almost as hard as the 5.10a to the right (Springbank).

The initial traverse can be done high (easier) or low but both ways require some thought. Higher, fun moves take one past a small overlap before finishing up a short right-facing corner (crux) requiring some creative footwork and body positioning. Great route!
