I'd say this route is closer to a 5.10a, with the "2-move crux" being the only 10a portion. I'm comparing this to the 5.9 two routes down, "Nervous Tic", that I felt was accurately rated. May 28, 2013

The right foot hold at the crux is crumbling away. It certainly crunches each time you stand upon it. Without it, the route will be harder. Fortunately, most of the rest of the climb is solid, albeit significantly easier, too. Dec 10, 2010

I think that the crux of this is height dependent. Probably 10a if taller. The crux solution might also be hard to see. It is a somewhat hidden hold up and right that is a continuation of a slanting seam. In any event, the bolt is at your waist when you are trying to solve the move. The route is called "Ixodes" Nov 1, 2010
