Tea Bag is steep and sustained. Fun climbing on a range of excellent positive features. The moves are entertaining and thought provoking. The protection is excellent. Feels like a 5.10C

this is a great route. Tricky and sustained for sure, just keep moving your feet up - excellent feet! Sustained for the grade and I think a damn fine onsight or redpoint route. Subsequent climbs are still sure to satisfy.

My favorite climb in the Tea Room. Balancy, technical and fun.

Good route. The best one on the East wall. The "Tea Room" is still a little loose..hopefully with traffic it will get better.

A thoroughly enjoyable 10c that stays steady from bottom to top. Beware of reaching up too far past the anchors as there is a pile of loose rock waiting to come down.
