Probably only 10b if you're over 6', but definitely a lot of fun regardless. Would imagine it being more difficult if I was shorter

Beautiful line and rock, a little grungy at the stance before the first bolt which is quickly passed both in movement and memory. Bolt placements are thoughtful and easy to clip. Perhaps height dependent - our 6' partner Alex had no issue, I'm 5'7 and had no issue while our 5'4" partner chose a different, less reachy line but pulled it off no trouble.

A 3 bolt gem and definitely worth doing. Bolts are beefy, top left anchor bolt spins slightly but plenty of shaft exposed and shear strength when lowering/rapping. (#nonissue)
