Just to the right of Icon, this is an excellent line that incorporates balance and small, moderate technical moves.

Move up past the undercling to a series of small holds. Reach the first jug and continue up the steep section. Move around the lip and make the reach for the huge jug about 3/4 of the way up. Mantel onto the jug, and then move up easier climbing to the anchor.


Just left of Icon, toprope only.


Toprope, shares a bolted anchor with Icon.

This route is a generous 5.10b. I've climbed this route multiple times now and it's a technical 5.9 in my opinion. Does anybody else have thoughts on this??

I believe the bottom section warrants at least 5.10a, which is what is printed on the picture of the whole crag. I agree that 10b is a bit too generous.

Many people head left at the start, which would put the climb more into the 5.9 realm, in my opinion. However, with a legitimate - straight under the first bolt start - it is 5.10a.
