3 out of 5 stars Fun

Spoiler alert: The crux is moving from the final bolt to the chains. Low to Zero fall consequence at that point, so go for it! If you maintain center of gravity absolutely over the bolt line, you're looking at an .11+ crux. If you move center of gravity about 1 1/2 ft to the right, to a left-angling seam, you keep the rating at .10b. A crusty older climber that was there told me that, and I agree with him. I inspected said options.

3 out of 5 stars Sly KGB

The right side of the upper roof appeared more positive, it was not. Left and over is the way to go. Single move is 10b, the rest is lower grade.

Easy to get lost in the sea of bolts.
