Been trying to push my crack leading into the 10s, and this is a good route for that. Seemed like the crux was the first 20 feet or so, but maybe there were a few 10a spots higher up. I had no problem at all protection-wise. Ended up sinking mostly stoppers in the first half - probably could have put more pro in if I wanted to. This was my first 10b trad-onsight - wuhu! No falls for me or my partner on the routes we did here, but scrambling out I slipped and twisted my ankle - oww - probably no climbing for a few days.
PS: Rich (see note above), I didn't get your TCU stuck - you just tried to remove it a different way than I put it in :)
