|Assuming the photo I posted is Linkage and not "Unnamed 5.10" (see photo of next route in MP) a 70 gets you down no problem. Not 140 feet.|

Any consensus on whether the route photo is actually of Linkage or of this Unnamed 5.10?
I don't have the Bloom guide book handy, and I've heard that it has some mistakes for routes at the far right of the wall (starting around Collision Course maybe?).
I climbed the pictured route a couple of days ago and found the offwidth to be burly and a bit hard to protect without a #5 or #6 Camalot. A 70m is fine for rapping or TR. A TR here will also let you play around in the easy yet unprotectable chimney just to the left (we jokingly called it "Strut", though surely someone else has climbed it before).

|No, the photo currently posted is not Linkage. This route sits around the right of a large detached flake/block/pillar. Right before the flake/block/pillar reads a plaque: "Knobby Tires." Since Linkage is to the left of Knobby Tires, this can't be Linkage.|
