3 out of 5 stars Heads up

Maybe because this was the last route of the day it felt hard but I doubt it (10d too much?). The initial corner is light 5.10 climbing but the top corner is full on, especially when it necks down to green Alien size. Notice the scratches on both walls from hipscumming, tell tale signs of struggle. I aided the last 15 feet without shame... well maybe a little.
