If this had some more good pitches on top of it, it would be the best 10 in the Gunks. A route with 4 or 5 cruxes, but with good rest before them. The 5.9 section is scary but I am not convinced it is R. I wasn't about to test it, though ;)
I thought this was the hardest 10 I have ever done at the Gunks
It starts off with HARD slab moves (I am short and had a tough time reaching the big holds at the top of the opening slab). We did not do the opening slab as outlined in the gray dick, we moved directly under the roof and worked our way up the slab from there. It was crazy hard. First roof was fine, R section of the orange face was fine until the last moves under the roof. Up to slopers, oops off hanging into space, up to slopers again and pushed hard to get to the horizontal below the roof. Roof was fine, next roof was fine. I thought this route just keeps coming at you. Much harder for me than Feast of Fools and any other 10 at the gunks.
Whoa! Slipped out of a layback at the second roof once, lowered to a stance and got it second try. A perfectly named quintessential Gunks climb: short hard crux moves, good rests, generally solid gear with a little short bit of sketch, and lots of horizintals!
