This seemed a little sandbagged but maybe I am just out of shape because I felt like I was trying kind of hard on what is usually a warmup. Everything feels a little slick and hollow. Lots of balancy moves and interesting route finding. Excellent route but wish the rock were better.
This is much harder than 5.10b. The first bolt is fifteen feet up and it is some of the hardest moves on the route. Once you're to the first bolt, the second and third are not much easier. Pure chaos until you get past the 5th bolt. The holds are extremely jagged and thin as well.
