Fun, continuous overhanging pockets.

One route left of "Stacked Deck".

Quite sandbagged, would be a 5.11 at most other crags. My 2 cents.

I agree with Caliza, this seemed 5.11 to me. Its much harder than the 5.11a to the right--"Roll in the Hay"

Yeah, this route is pretty stout. Similar in difficulty to The Devil Wears Spurs, which is another candidate for a 5.11 grade. Probably 5.11 at most crags and harder than a bunch of 5.11- stuff at the Iris. Still, I like the 'old school' 10d rating because it reminds of how hard stuff felt when I was learning to climb here um-teen years keeps me honest!!

I think the sandbagged rating comes from the inaccurate location description. This route is not immediately to the left of Stacked Deck. Its immediately left of "roll in the hay" which is a pretty soft 11.

Stout even for 11a. Tough (for 11-) boulder down low.
