4 out of 5 stars Nice

On a Top Rope, this feels considerable easier than 10 D

4 out of 5 stars Awesome, fun climb.

One of the more interesting, moderate climbs around. I first TR'ed this route, but like the description says, very awkward - you face quite a pendulum if you slip in the wrong place. I also tried trad - there's a fair amount of places for cams (I used Camelots, .75 to 2).

3 out of 5 stars Good

Hard start, but once onto the crack the holds are all there, even if the feet aren't great.

2 out of 5 stars .10d?

On top rope, so I stopped about 15 feet short of the bolts because I was way left of them. I also started up the slab under the crack because it was interesting. Wouldn't rate my ascent harder than .10b.
