High Five feels like a 10 in places, but my guess is that after I've climbed it a few times, I'll agree it's a solid 9. There's a neat variety of hand-holds, from crimps and jugs to tiny single-finger pockets (which you will probably need to use to stand up on the first low mantle). A fun route that's worth trying.

Impeccable rock, quite unlike most Vantage moderates. Plug in a 3-4" cam if you want pro before the first bolt.

The guidebook has this as a 5.8 which might be a bit of a sandbag.....definitely not 5.10 movement in my opinion though. Ridin' Sidesaddle just to the right is a solid 5.9 and this climb is definitely easier than that. The climbing is very different from most Vantage jug hauls and definitely worth doing!
