5.10 up to 4th bolt, then tough moves over a bulge. Book says 5.12a, but not really that hard.

2 out of 5 stars machete direct 5.8 A2

used original start from tree and traversed left on broken poorly protectable rock to a couple of 5.7 moves to the 1st bolt, then 3 bolts straight up to 5.7+ moves out of your topsteps. 2nd pitch standard 5.7 R, 3rd traverse up and right to bolt, head around to the worst rock ive seen in pinnacles, backed off after many!! footholds broke on the upper (corner/roof) and lower (face) scary
