This line is only 5.10a after you reach the first jug. At 6'4", you can just make the first move static. After the first move, which is protected by a bolt, follow fun patina face climbing protected by finger sized cams.

This would be a 4 star route, except for the height dependent first move....[more] Browse More Classics in Idaho

This area has a great selection of mixed routes in the 5.10 range. Only a light rack up to a #1 camalot is needed. The starts of the routes are normally the crux.
