Comments: I believe the 10a rating is for the face climb. Stay off the flakes and it is a worthy route. The crux is just before the last bolt before the anchor, forcing the leader to commit to a sequence of 10a moves with the reward being the safety of a bolt. The price of failure is a clean 15 foot fall. So, if you want the 10a rating follow the bolt line up the face.

Comments: I hate to say it but I busted a hold off the start of Mighty Thor. Somewhere around the 25 ft mark there is now a gaping flat spot where a beautiful blocky chunk used to be. It was a great hold for your left hand, but when I got my foot up on it it busted, depositing me into the arms of my belayer.
