Cool addition to the cliff. The routefinding on the headwall seemed to be the crux. Feels harder than Lava Haul.

Hard to believe such gems still exist at the Gorge. This route has a lot of variety - lie backs, stemming, jugs... easy going movement all the way with plenty of large foot holds whenever one is needed. We did Tall Dollar (10b) the same day which felt a lot harder than this route. Also did Double Flipper and Machine Gun Jumblies (10a) in one pitch the same day - also felt harder, but only marginally.

We did it again on 5/17/17 and it felt a little harder. My vote is 10a.
