without a stick clip to first moves are very committing, as you are starting on a ledge five or ten feet up, and climbing another five feet to the first bolt.

From the description given above, my group and I thought we were on this climb. We still aren't 100% sure though. If we were on the correct route, there is absolutely no way this climb is a 5.9 as the RRG guidebook calls it, or a 5.10a as shown above. The bottom 2.5 bolts were definitely a slab climb, but EXTREMELY technical and in at least the 10c-10d range. Above that, the climb got slightly overhanging and was basically a super sustained crimp fest in the quarter to half pad range, with holds being spaced a pretty good distance part. This didn't improve much until the last bolt. All in all I would put this climb in the11b-c range at least. I would love to know if I'm going off the deep end here and talking about an unlisted new route because I'm not sure.
