Description:

Starts in the middle of the big open-book dihedral that demarks the border of Mossy Wall (left) and Middle Earth Wall (right). Tentative grade; need more feedback. It's either 5.10a or b, no higher.

2 out of 5 stars a b a b c

To date, the grade opinions I've collected are 5.10a, 5.10b, 5.10a, 5.10b, 5.10c. Two of those are listed above (Annette & Karl). I suspect maybe the anchor clip gets harder with size. The route's not my fav with the crux-by-far being the anchor clip, but it offers an unsent (to-date) topout and a warmup for the ledge routes.
