I found this climb to be much more difficult than Lovesnake or Tanks for Huecos, which the guidebook calls 5.10 c/d. It was very slick with only a few hand jams in the way of positive hand holds. My feet were skating all over the place. Also, the unprotected first 20 feet are kind of spooky, but a bolt would feel unnecessary. Be solid in your awkward crack skills.

That would make too much sense. Better to just bitch about it and beat your chest proclaiming what a hard man you are.
