3 out of 5 stars a few possible variations

This is a fun route, but it has a fun variation (I'd say 10.b) if you stick to your guns and go straight up by the bolt instead of veeing to the left at the bulge.

Note that most people I've seen are using the anchor of Orangahang for this route instead of the ones to the right like the Falcon guide suggests. Makes it kind of a different route...

Nice. Would be a scary lead.
