First route I did at North Shore thinking it was a 5.9. Was pleasantly surprised to find out true grade upon onsighting. Burly start move for shorter people, cruiser mid section, finding holds at the top was a challenge.
Britta and I think it might be worth an upgrade to 10b. The route left of it has a comparable hard opening move, but Britta did it static; foot selection might be key to have it not feel harder than 10a. This route has a much harder finish.
