Maybe this route is entirely height dependent (I am 5'4"), but it seemed on par with squiggles at Trout Creek in terms of difficulty. I think the only reason this is 10a is that the crack is very short. However, it is also very thin.

I feel this is a sandbagged route due to the short, hard section. The majority of the route is 5.7, but the crack is 10b/c. It is WAY harder than cocaine crack on Icicle Buttress (10a) or Hello Kitty (10-) on middle eight mile buttress.
