3 out of 5 stars Rating Notation

I have lead this route several times and it is a fun, safe little lead. I think the rating is a little "soft," at 5.10c. When I compare it to established 5.10c routes such as Lunatic Fringe in the Valley, the rating seems "soft." I would drop it at least one notch, likely two--i.e., 5.10b or 5.10a, to bring it in line with other established areas. It is a fun route with some interesting, non-obvious features, but very safe, and a good place to climb when it is hot.
