Great route, but I'd say a little hard for 10b. The first pitch crux layback is sustained for about 20 feet, and the foot holds are few and far between. My belayer noted a constant stream of dust coming down from the infrequently used smears. I think with some more traffic this climb would clean up a bit and probably get a little easier. The second pitch is great and certainly less sustained than the first, awesome moves on the arete. Aug 24, 2014
