4 out of 5 stars Back for more 10 years later

This was the only dry climb on the second day of rain at T-wall on this trip. It happens to be exactly 10 years to the date from the first time I climbed this. It's harder now, as many of the holds through the middle and upper sections of the pitch have rounded off. Guide book calls it 10d, and I concur.

Different from the rest of T-Wall, very technical feet.

4 out of 5 stars Who knew?

A first-rate 5.10 sport climb... at T-Wall? Really fun, powerful start leads to delicate moves that keep you on your toes to the very end. Super fun!

3 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

This is a neat route, but a lot of the key holds are soft flakes of patina. It may get a bit harder as more people climb it.
