5 out of 5 stars FIVE NINE!!!!!!!!

That's what I yelled after TRing. But it's maybe 5.9+ TRing and definitely 5.10a by the time you make clips on lead. Still the healthiest warmup on the south--Die Hard is a good route but not a good warmup. Two others (one big, one small) confirmed 10a.

4 out of 5 stars eliminate the lower crux to Apprehension

John Hogge and I desiring a 5.9-ish climb between Mai Tai Wall and Crankenstein (which only has Back Off Crack at a one-bolt trad 5.9 climb).

Even though this by-passes the crux start of 5.10b/c, I feel that the upper crux to Apprehension, and hence this variation, is likely still a 5.10a move.
