Start left of an elm tree. The Stewart Green book says something about a layback section but I dont remember this. I remember the three cruxes though. A couple of trust you feet moments.

5 out of 5 stars Fun route

Getting to the first piton was the hardest part I thought. After that, trust the feet and have some fun. 5.10a, or maybe 5.9+. There were a few points where it definitely felt like a 5.10, but others where not so much...

I hate when books downgrade routes. First time I did this route was on toprope, and the guide said 10b. Now that I do it on lead the guide says 10a. Go figure. Definitely a couple spots that require trust issues with your feet, so I would say 10a/b, depending on which holds you can or can't find.

4 out of 5 stars Great Climb

This is one of my favorite climbs at RRC. It has good friction moves, and the corner at the top really adds some variety to the otherwise all friction climbs in RRC. Great route! Last time I climbed it though the first bolt's hanger was spinning, the bolt was still good but someone who knows what they are doing should get a wrench and just tighten the hanger down.
