Just did this today and found it a good challenge. I've done many 10a's in the Hills, and this was definitely a notch above. 10b seems to be close to my on-sight limit, and I got this one, too. Because I'm 6'4", I was able to climb up a bit on the left and reach over for the clip at the crux then down climb and cross over and up, which is the only way to do it. Where you cross depends on how you envision the crux. My wife at 5'3" crossed lower, a little below the 5th bolt; I crossed a little below the 6th. Stout! Great fun and worth a lap.

this thing definitely felt broken to me this past weekend. obvious feature had fallen off near maybe the 4th bolt? 5th bolt? I'm 5'7 and the climb felt miles harder than anything else of the grade on the Eastside I have climbed.
