This is a great climb. It's long, it's got really varied climbing and the crux is near the top. Lots of fun. You need a 70M for this climb. In fact, before you belay, tie a knot in your rope. Mitch lowered me to the slabs and I nearly went through his belay device.

Generally agree with 5.9+, but for potrero, could easily be called 5.10a.

My favorite single pitch in EPC so far! Definitely some committing moves, but I found this easier and less scary than other 5.9 pitches in EPC (I don't lead harder than 5.9). Though my partner said she found it harder than some 5.10s she led, so I guess it depends on your climbing style.

Lots of fun varied climbing as others said, the biggest crux for me was the chimney / open book at the end, well that and pulling all that rope weight to clip the final bolts.. Definitely bring a 70m.
