At the anchors

Description 

This is the most popular 5.10 on the left side of the OK. It has some fun pocket climbing with a very steep and tricky finish. Climb up under the final headwall, which is passed on the left. A two bolt anchor with biners awaits you on the right. A few of the final pockets can be a little sharp.

Location 

One of the early trails from the main road leads to the base.

Protection 

5-6 bolts

The new guidebook calls this 11a, which I'll accept. The crux is all on jugs, but it's steep and sequencey. It's definitely more sustained than other 10+/11- routes at the corral.
Whatever the grade, this thing is awesome, and totally worth falling off of a few times if you're trying to get into 11s.

This is a really fun route, but I'm going to have to disagree with the previous comment. I thought the route was soft for even 5.10d. I climbed several other 5.10c's the same day that felt harder than this one. Also, as to it being sequential at the top. I was told that I did it with a completely different sequence than anyone else at the crag that day had done it, and my partner then did it the "right" way. Neither of us thought it was harder than about 5.10c with each of us using very different sequences at the top.
