Pitch one was more like 5.6 and Pitch 2/3 were fantastic. I really liked the clean rock on this wall. I thought this was nicer than Will the Wolf Survive.

Got on this because there was a line for Will the Wolf Survive. Very happy we did it. Pitches 2 and 3 offered the most consistent climbing we've encountered in the Potrero (not that we've done too much). I'd say both grades, 10c and 10a, would stand up at my usual crag, the New River Gorge. Quality!

P1 is very easy, P2, right side variation is 10b/c ish, P3 is softer, but, the moves to the second bolt can feel committing.
