4 out of 5 stars straightforwardly sketchy

Oxymoronic? I think so... but given its odd first bolt placement and a sketchy undercling to bulbous pinch transition between the third and fourth bolt, as well as a airy traverse to the right between two flake systems before the fifth bolt, it's not completely crazy to be a bit sketched out.

Given the positive hands, this is far from a true Yosemite grade 5.10d, but for Holcomb, it's right on the money. Climb it as an ego boost... it's a relatively straightforward quickie.
