I found that if you stay to the right on the arete that this climb will feel more like 10a or so. Apr 24, 2010

Not a great route but worth doing as a warm-up or to add a pitch. The only difficult part is the very end. Nov 18, 2012

This is a pretty fun one-hit-wonder. Climb through the first three or four bolts on really easy, juggy rock. The crux and really the only moderate move of the whole route comes at the bulge about mid-way up the crack system.

Stem, smear, or muscle your way over the bulge to the next bolt, and cruise the rest of the crack to the anchors. Feb 16, 2016

The D'antonio book lists the trad climb to the left of Kodachrome as Mr. Fred, 5.9+. It shares anchors with Kodachrome and makes for a decent toprope with a fun move coming out from beneath the mini-roof, if you're into that kind of thing. Most of the crack felt much easier up to that point, so kind of a one move wonder as well. Mar 10, 2016
