Easy wide crack up a semi-teetering flake followed by a fun dihedral crack. Be aware, the traverse was much harder than 10+ though. Place some small nuts in the horizontal before the crack pinches off and move left on a vertical wall with two sloping crimps and absolutely no feet (other than moss and lichen). I had to go back and rehearse the moves on TR and still think there's no way 10+ is accurate, maybe 10+ A0. Stellar, (12a) at Six Toe Rock was a significantly easier onsight than this traverse after top rope rehearsal. Just a heads up.
