My favorite in the Tea Room because of its sustained quality. It never lets up until the anchor.

Kinda a one move wonder 10c. Crux is low but hard, then eases off.

A primary start hold for the right hand is so loose that to use it would risk a small ground fall. This makes the start a little bit trickier, but not undoable. Overall, the route is harder through the first three clips, and then it eases off a bit. Feels true to 10c.
