We did this today, wow, what a super fun line. Where climber is in pic felt like the crux. Any thoughts on grade? Felt 9+ / 10a, but we're not that gunksperienced... Nov 16, 2013
The jamming there is pretty insecure, I'd say 5.9, but the exit moves are WAY crimpy 10c or so. But maybe you didn't top out where I did.

Edit to add - So this route is "Pumped", 5.8+. John and I seem to have been discussing the optional (and not-that-great/hard to protect) right hand finish. It went in the book with the MUCH better finish up into a right-facing corner (not visible in this photo) and exit left. Better gear, better moves. Go that way. Nov 21, 2013
You can't really see the crack I'm on in this photo, but this is a really good line. Crack to corner capped by ceiling (pass on left). "Pumped" 5.8+ G *** May 31, 2015
