[Hide Comment] the start of this climb is much harder than the starts of a host of other 10b's or 10c's at jacks and even the "11a" to the left, virtual reality. it would be ok to downgrade all those climbs to 8's so we can call this one 10a, but some consistency is in order.... Mar 23, 2010

[Hide Comment] Totally agree. After the 3rd bolt it does ease up into 5.9 climbing so I assume the originally rating is based on the fact it eases up but agree. Oct 22, 2017
