4 out of 5 stars 5.10a My Ass

This felt harder than Tagger which is in the guidebook as a 10c. Harder than Rincon, 10d, granted I was in better shape. I wouldn't have felt sandbagged if it said 10c but not 10a. Why do Eldo 5.11's feel more accurate than 10's and 9's?

4 out of 5 stars Tricky

I followed this route. The guy I led it with wasn't able to make it over the two cruxes (the one on the first pitch and the one on the second pitch). He aided himself up, but I was able to make it up (barely) without aiding, though I was technically on top rope because I was following.
