5 out of 5 stars Hard for the grade!

I finally got back on this and sent it, but still feel like it is the hardest 10a I have ever done. Almost everyone agrees that this is hard for the grade, but every once in a while you get some jerkface who says, nah it's 5.9....whatever! :)

5 out of 5 stars ***

A must do classic.... if you hit the correct locks at the top it is only a 5.9 NOT 10...If you go the wrong way as many people do, it will be harder....

4 out of 5 stars Nutcracker in Autumn

Climbed it free through the first bulge/cruxy move. Worked through the hand/fist jams bouncing around on camalots. (If Hot Henry says it's a 5.9, it's a 5.9)

4 out of 5 stars Nutcracker

5.10a or 5.9+ is an irrelevant debate at this cliff. A great route with sustained pumpy climbing and a deceptive move off a good stance 1/3 of the way up.
