Bolted crack. Felt harder than it looked.

    This is located on the Upper Wall of the Clock Tower. This is the furthest route to the right, just up and right of the main roof routes. The bottom of the route is fairly simple, but the upper half, using the crack (partial hand jam) is the crux indeed. Reaching that jug by the 6th bolt may be harder than it looks. Perhaps this is the only route I have climbed in the Sport Park that could use the rating upped a grade or so. 5.10b.

    Protection 

    8 bolts - 2 bolt anchor.

    Another bolted crack, whats up with that, overrated, 10a if you're a sport climber who never climbed a crack, more like 5.8+/9- in the real world.

    Why the bag of sand?
    True, crack and face differ, but the crux was definitely 5.10a for a couple moves. I suppose if you are wearing tape on your hand it would be easier.... I didn't tape up and ended up with less skin and blood than when I started.

    Not that I'd bring a rack up to Sport Park, but this could easily and safely be led on gear. You could get a piece in up high before pulling the crux move or two.

    And it's definitely a 10 crux, albeit short. Why rate it 8+ just because you're angry that it's a bolted crack? Especially after you just (apparently) climbed it yourself?
