April TR'ing "Welcome to the Machine".
This route is located on the left end of the 'Cactus Rose Crag' This line is the furthest left route. The climbing to the first bolt could be a little spicy for some, but the holds are decent. The climbing gets pretty fun at the 3rd/4th bolt which are quite close to each other, there is a rib sidepull which is for sure the crux, but you will find better holds just above. This route is again a continuous one, like many others on this crag. A good intermediate route with fairly good protection.
5 bolts - 2 bolt/sling anchor.

[Van Horn's] guides and [Green's] guide give it 11c/d and 11d. climbed it last night and it is definitely closer to these grades. not sure if [Knapp] might have accidently typo-ed in his guide. good route though, probably be 12b at [Cactus].

Certainly not 10d. That must be a typo. It felt all of 11d to me. Continuously difficult ending in a tough set of moves.

I agree. Harder than 10d. Got off of it and was like "wow, some 10s are just crazy hard!"
