Fun route, especially when you get stuck in the rain in the darkie cave and aren't at the 5.12+ level haha There is no way this is a 5.10b though, apart from the bouldery start, its an easy 5.9. I'd suggest stick-clipping the first bolt

They added another bolt in line with the flake. No need to reach way right to clip anymore. Kinda takes the fun out of it for me.

I climbed this during the downpour this past weekend (4th of July) and it felt like the few lower blocks were loose. They've always sounded hollow, but I feel like I saw some hairline cracks, possible movement, especially on the second "loaf" up. Yet another reason to stick clip that first bolt!
