Rolf starting up Genetic Mirror.

Description 

A fun climb, tpyical of a Skaha 5.10. Incut holds, a few tricky sequences, good rests. At the top it trends right in some nice rock similar to glacier-polished granite (maybe it is glacier polished). Now called 5.10c in the new routes and updates published on skaha.org.

Location 

Starts on a little ledge just left of Slices of Quince.

Protection 

9 or 10 draws, bolted anchor.

A great route - won't go so far as to call it a classic though. Definitely a sustained push from the ground, but unsure if it should be upgraded to 10c - ultimately, I defer to the authors.
