[Hide Comment] I thought this was a pretty easy 10a (that's what the tag says I believe). I'm going to let the online rating boost my self-esteem for awhile. Really enjoyed the route, lots of fun to climb! Sep 27, 2014

[Hide Comment] IMO, the best of the three .10's on this wall. Not the hardest but the nicest. .10a/b seems fair. Oct 26, 2015
