Has anyone else done this climb that can offer a more precise description? I topped out on this extremely confused, having climbed something that was no more than 5.6. We were at Jessica's block but saw nothing else on the right side that could be 10b unless:
-the climber does not stray from the crack at all and completely ignores the other crack (and good gear) a foot or so to the right.
-the line follows the seam up the wall to the left of the more obvious crack. (Didn't see any gear placements there.)

I didn't find good placements in the small crack and so ended up reaching right and placing a #3 and #4 in the wide crack. Overall, the climb was no more than 20' and was quite dirty. May 20, 2013
