Near the top of One Armed Bandit (5.10a), Holcomb ...
Start up flakes and broken cracks, pull a small roof, and then head up a short section of slab to reach a smooth face. Above the slab work up and left on hidden slots and jugs to a finishing mantle or rockover onto a small ledge with the anchors. Fairly long and varied, making this a recommended climb for the grade.
This is the next bolted line right of Claim Jumper and climbs the outer face of a narrow pillar between two wide cracks.
8 bolts, chain anchors

This is a very fun route. A bit sequential before the last bolt can get one pretty pumped before making the last clip.

This one is a good route on pretty darn good rock.

Just when you expect to finish up on this route, it surprises you with a flat, polished top out. The small roof and the moves through the last 2 bolts are the highlight! Agree with Adam's comment about the sequential moves near the top.....

The short roof and technical face towards the top make this a must do for the budding leader or oldtimers alike.

Found out the anchors use to be where the last bolts located. Top out is unnecessary and wasn't fun at all. Should have ended on the face climb. Fun nonetheless with a tricky roof section. Everyone I climbed with had different beta for it

Hardest 10a at Holcomb. Claimjumper 10a just to the left felt easier for sure.
