Description:

This route is directly to the right of Takes Balls Instead. It follows the arete. Getting past the first two bolts is challenging for a 10a/b climber. 10b seems like a solid grade.

2 out of 5 stars Hard for a 10b

Originally thought it was 5.7 for some reason while climbing it (read the book wrong), and thought I was just a horrible climber for some reason! Regardless, the low crux felt very difficult for 10b, honestly felt more 10c to me. A lot of the lower foot holds are quite polished (classic Wasootch), which doesn't help. Was still fun, and i'd like to go back for the redpoint at some point.
