The crack starts with an easy mantle and then the fun begins. The next 45 feet or so comprise the crux which is really fun face/smearing/fingercrack climbing on good pro. At about 50 feet, the angle eases and there is about 40 more feet of 5.6 to the 2 bolt anchor atop the "5.9 alcove route".
I really liked the cool crack systems at Parachute and thought it to be a really unique little crag. I thoroughly enjoyed this route and would recommend it as a nice 5.10 lead and a good break from clipping bolts.
A comment on the rating: I have climbed a long time and don't spend any time debating letter grades. I used the rating from Hubbel's guide as it seemed ballpark to me. Have fun ;-)
