Leading up to the roof is easy enough, but the finish sure gets your attention.
It's a bit sequencey, although depending on your strengths I think there's different ways to tackle it. Initially I tried just the crack to finish and that's waaay hard!
It's very well protected so it's a fun challenge.
Technically it may be 5.10a, but as on onsight it's closer to 5.10b Apr 28, 2015

Found this a very difficult onsight before getting warmed up. A second lap at the end of the day felt infinitely easier, but still harder than 10a. Oct 28, 2015

I'm going to second/third the upgrade for this. That upper corner is stout--solid 5.10. Call it 10b, but I wouldn't blanch at b/c. Not full 10+, but solid, middle of the grade. Superb climbing. I TR'd it but will lead next time. Jul 10, 2017

This climb is for sure one of the classics. Sticking with the crack at the end gets you a sick position but when it widens look around. One of the most fun routes at the dihedrals. Nov 26, 2018
