I tried to climb this the other day, and it felt like a 5.6...definitely not a 5.10. Am I missing something? I just followed the bolt line right of Alien Dave...looks to be about the same as in the picture. I was a bit left of the rope line in the picture at the bottom, but that's because the Aspen Fantasyland start is supposed to hug the left side of that roof, no?
Any suggestions? Have any of you climbed this and felt it was ~10b?
It's pretty hard to figure out which route is which between Intoxica and Aspen Fantasy Land with all the bolts around....

Sounds like you climbed Middle Staircase and not Intoxica. Middle Staircase is between Alien Dave and Intoxica. They share the same anchors on a large ledge.
Middle Staircase is indeed in the 5.6 range.
