Description:

5.10d*** is a chimney to a significant roof. However, for a 5.9 variation, use the chimney to bypass the roof. Be cautious of loose rocks and holds. Requires gentle and mindful climbing. Once past roof, go up one more move then traverse for good feet. If you traverse too soon it is quite smooth for feet. Continue up face with sharp holes, slopers, and nice flakes. A real nice climb whether you do the 10d or 9 variation.

Descent Options:

Lower off.

3 out of 5 stars Really fun!

My 5'5" leader was barely able to make the reach for the 10d roof crux move. I'm two inches shorter so used the chimney to bypass the roof. Really fun. Have to think and look all around for the best holds and feet.
