4 out of 5 stars The bottom is .10a

I would definitely grade the crack at the bottom 9+ at least. Looks like the right .10b exit is covered with moss or lichen. If you can't lead it, you should go right for the gully approach to three anchors at the top. Problem for us was that some jackass had piled the fixed webbing up out of reach so getting to the top was an ordeal that involved a very messy rap off a tree. This is the second time in two days we've seen evidence of local unfriendliness to topropers. No idea what that is all about. Not everyone owns a $1000 trad rack.
