Definetly a 4 star route. Finger jam and pull flakes and make sure you hit the correct body position to make the next move. Book calls it a 9+. Definetly expect to work and think alittle more on this one than your average 9.

Another nice warmup on the way towards harder things. This seems like you could find some good gear placements and avoid using as many bolts. It didn't seem any more difficult than the 5.9 next to it. The route finding was not tricky enough to warrant the plus.
Had a running conversation with my partner on the subject of yurts until about the third bolt. Crux-like moves through the section. The rest of the climb was clear sailing till near the anchors when I threw to a ledge to get a better stance to clip the anchors. I was feeling the pump at that point. Good longer route at Shelf!
