an uproute that crosses Open Space traverse, sharing one bolt. This is a fun thin face to a fun juggy roof. It had trouble passing committee, as it looked short. (But was no shorter than other uproutes on the wall. Committees. Good in the long run, but a PITA occasionally). I counted the hand movements, totaling something like 17, and my plea carried. I had this at 10c during a short period of wired status, but it's probably 10d.

5 out of 5 stars thin face to juggy roof

BTW tiny Neil says 10c, while big hulking DP says 11 freakin B. Perhaps measure it to some Dead Cats face routes, and also the face portion of Bolt Talk to build a grade consensus.
