We did this route on TR and found the moves to be pretty stout for 10a. However, it was a very fun climb. The thin crack at the start was a pumpy yet delicate lieback and the face move at the bolt above was tough.

I would definitely agree with previous comment, the layback at the beginning is definitely 10a but the face move at the top is prolly a/b if the bolt was higher it would be a solid B. Fun route though.

" prolly a/b if the bolt was higher it would be a solid B"
Really? You probably want to think this one through. Fun climb anyway!
