[Hide Comment] Probably no moves harder than 10a, but just about every single move above the broken pillar is 10a, with few decent rests. I think that calls for a 10b rating. I also say 10b relative to the other 10a's at the Bend west, Bend Prow, and the Royal Columns. We did this climb first as 2 pitches, with an anchor on top of the broken pillar. Your choice of multiple starts, but I prefer starting up the wide-ish crack directly below the pillar because it has some nice hand jams. Bring a BD #4 if you want to project yourself on the final moves to the top of the broken pillar. Jun 14, 2020
