5.10 seems to be too high of a grade 5.8, maybe 9 if you stay on route and only use the small holds up top, but sweeping right as described definitely not 10... did this on TR...didn't even know it was on here till after the fact (was going to add)

try the route on pro the way its meant to be done.the route actually moves through the blank section at the top then goes left to a topout.i will revise the route description.its bolted now if you dont want to do it on pro.thanks for the input,try it again on lead it will go harder than a nine i promise!

this route has been recently retro bolted.it has 3 bolts and top out anchors.the route is considered mixed now,so you still need a light rack
