|Good climb. If you bring a trad rack jump on this. Definitely easier than 10a, but I would give it a solid 9, if not 9+.|

This crack zips up real nice with nuts and cams #0.3-#2.
No need for TCUs or the bolt.
The flake on the arete between Gearhead and Airhead is very loose.

|A fall traversing from the bolt to the anchors could be bad as the rope runs along the sharp arete. Happened to me today, and my rope took some sheath damage. I had a piece in after the bolt; maybe it helped.|
