A thoroughly enjoyable 10c that stays steady from bottom to top. Beware of reaching up too far past the anchors as there is a pile of loose rock waiting to come down. Nov 17, 2016

wonder who the tea bag is? BC? Sep 28, 2016
Good route. The best one on the East wall. The "Tea Room" is still a little loose..hopefully with traffic it will get better. Nov 28, 2013

this is a great route. Tricky and sustained for sure, just keep moving your feet up - excellent feet! Sustained for the grade and I think a damn fine onsight or redpoint route. Subsequent climbs are still sure to satisfy. Mar 21, 2011

Tea Bag is steep and sustained. Fun climbing on a range of excellent positive features. The moves are entertaining and thought provoking. The protection is excellent. Feels like a 5.10C Dec 11, 2009
