Start off on the finger crack until you get to the top of the diagonal crack. Then you've got an 8 foot traverse to the left in the horizontal crack. Then follow Direct to the top.

Fun little climb. The traverse is fairly easy with maybe one hard move at the end of it. If this is a .10 then Direct is an .11. Either that or I am doing at least one of them horribly wrong.

Finger crack has some nice grip to it, balancey move on up the wall, probably not quite a 5.10 unless you walk the crack until it completely ends
