4 out of 5 stars C-Tips

Easier than it looks thanks to a spattering of conveniently spaced edges and laybacks, reminiscent of Solid Gold at Joshua Tree. I'd put this at 5.10, but not .10+, easier than Menace or Maestro. Reachy at times, especially at the 6th bolt.

3 out of 5 stars n/c

This isn't 10d, more like 10b. The guide gives it 10c. Maestro and Menace To Sobriety are both more difficult at 10c. It's not R either. The "unprotected" slab moves are about 5.7. I realize I seconded it, but I've led many a dicey route.
Quality route that looks really friggin' hard.

5 out of 5 stars Good Climb

First bolt isn't bad to get to, easiest 10d i've climbed in the dacks. I'd put it more at 10a 10b, I think the guidebook has it as 10c. It's C-tips actually, short for Carbide Tips because some of the holds are sharp.

5 out of 5 stars onsight

I didn't find any pro low, and I went high--9 R--the rest of the route is superb and well protected. Looks improbable from below, but yeh, its about 10 D

Great route - very thin and very technical.
