Jason cranking the crux moves on the unknown sport...

Description 

climb up face and crack using thin fingers and balance. Steep and fun with good movement.

Protection 

Bolts and some small stuff inbetween.

This is how I set up the TR. I used the first two bolts of one route then headed up and right on easy 5th. I obtained the sloping ledge after two 5.8 moves.

I thought this climb was significantly harder than 5.10. The bolts are sparse in a few places but natural pro is available. Single set of cams to .5 camalot and micronuts would be plenty.

There is no way this route is 10a or whatever the OP would suggest. I would argue "The Route I Climbed" was not climbed by the OP. Be ready for some tough climbing between spaced bolts. Good climbing none the less, but be ready for 11- climbing.

The route Fran started on the left is a 9 that is a fun bolted sport route that gets on the arete on the left. I think he may have finished on a trad line that is to the right of that sport route. The climb on the face to the right that Karsten and Darren are talking about, to the right of a corner, is a sport 11 that is pretty well bolted. I say well, because I think all the crucial areas are well protected to make for a pretty safe, albeit thoughtful climb.
