Description 

This route climbs past the bolt near the tree (similar to one start for Dad's Nuts) and then proceeds to follow a bolt line up and slightly right. There are a few awkward blocks and ledges down low but the climbing becomes more sustained and steep higher up. Towards the top you trend left to a set of anchors. It is possible to traverse right at the top to descend off of the Route 66 anchors (and also setup a top-rope on that route).

Location 

This is the first bolted line in the Mordor sector and is just right of the blocky crack/corner of Dad's Nuts.

Protection 

10 or so quickdraws

I led this route last week and it felt comfortably within the 5.10 range. It is far easier than route 66 next door. If consensus pushes it up into the 10d/11a range I will adjust the route grade.

This is definitely easier than Route 66 but given the other routes in the crag felt like 11a. Mrs. Norris on the other hand felt like a definite step up from Route 66
