Comments: I climbed the first pitch at the end of the day expecting to finish my day with an easy 5.9 pitch (well as easy as 5.9 crack climbing can be in IC), but to my surprise it felt nothing like 5.9. It may not be as long as all the 5.10 cracks on supercrack buttress (3 AM, No name crack...), but I think it is technically just as challenging as any of those routes. It has some off-fist sections so #4 camalots are nice for the top section. I would give the first pitch a 5.10 rating with.
