Not sure how this ever got a 10b in the book, slightly harder then Split Beaver or Pony Keg, so I am thinking 510a That said the upper portion is excellent. The crux is steep upper portion where it goes from fingers to tight hands to wide hand jam, #3 camalot protects it.
there is a 2 bolts/chain anchor ( added in 2016).

Other than the mediocre start, this is the best crack climb at Vantage! Rock is really quality. Not sure about the 5.9 post, seemed right on to me. See what other people think.
