I think a more 5.10a route would cut to the right to the huge ledge after the roof and then work up and to the left. Staying committed to the seam after the roof, I think, is more like 5.11. I might be a little easier for taller people because they might be able to skip the ugly finger jams. Jan 4, 2007

This is a good route. I thought following the line in the picture was 5.9, pulling over farther right felt the same. No jams on this get over the roof on good edges. The cool pockets at the top are nice and solid. Feb 8, 2018
