I didn't think there were any 5.10 moves on this, you could always move left to easier ground when it got harder. 15-20 ft runout from last bolt to anchors on 5.easy ground.

Obviously you didn't follow the red taped holds.

This is one of those sport routes where you can kind of choose to climb 5.10 face moves or 5.8 moves further left in the weakness. I might come back with cams sometime and try it out as a 5.8 gear lead. That being said I had fun clipping the bolts and loved the exposed step left to the arete.

There is a runout on 5.5 terrain that could probably protect with just one cam in the 1-4" range.
