This route is located on Blair I next to Raised on Robbery - a Bob Scarpelli classic. It starts on some 5.9 hands angling left until you can clip a bolt out right to gain the flared traverse. At the end of the traverse, head up the thin crack until you make a tricky switch into the sustained hand crack above.

Small to hand-sized gear and a couple of QDs.

Found a green extender on the second bolt. Looks like it had been there for awhile, but if it was left on purpose (for working the route) let me know. Seems like a waste to leave 2 biners and an extender to bail with.

I traverse much lower than shown in the picture, all the way to where the horizontal ends.

A couple of hard moves protected by the bolt, then sustained, but easier, to the top.

Classic route. Not 10a, as the newest guidebook states—that's hilarious. 11b/c feels right.

This gets a 10a rating in Zach's guide? I really do not understand how he came up with that. He did not do his research very well in some circumstances.

I always thought this climb was more difficult than 10a, but after looking at the up-to-date guide, I thought I might be wrong in my thinking (after not climbing the Voo in sometime). Upon leading the route I reaffirmed my previous beliefs as to the difficulty of the climb after hanging several times.

The 10a rating in the Orenczak/Lynn guidebook is comical. At least it's not a dangerous sandbag as the route is very safe once the first bolt is clipped.
