3 out of 5 stars cruxy bottom

fun, felt bottom was the crux. Like others, and how book seems to show, started left below clip, traversed out. Was able to hand/foot match on the second crux on the good feet. Makes it easier if you get them but harder to get them. Route seemed a little runout like most slabs...

3 out of 5 stars Friction

Not much for hold between bolts two and three. Mostly friction.

4 out of 5 stars at the tombstone of Wilbur

As I headed to the first bolt, I felt that a crash pad would have been a comfort. I also traversed from the left to get to the first bolt. From there the climb was less scary, but still a challenge.

3 out of 5 stars crappy moves to first bolt

Started left and traversed along crack to first bolt. Feels off route, but technically within acceptable range. The bulge over to the second bolt is the crux, then easy steps up to the top.

It's definitely a 5.9 outside of Holcomb, but should be a 10a for consistency with the rest of Holcomb grading.
