Originally 3 bolts run out to the anchors. For the grade that seemed risky. Sharp and vicious, this route was originally called ex-wife. But every single route at the wall followed the Tolkein theme, so I got in line with it.

5 out of 5 stars Troll Teeth

This is probably my favorite 5.10 in all of Reimers/North Shore. It's a staple warm up (3rd or 4th route for me) because it introduces some smaller crimps and gets a little pumpy at the end. Some say it's sharp, I say it's textured. (It's sharp).

This route might be hard for the beginning 10 climber because of the small holds. If you're not able to lock off the moves you'll be slapping at little sharp holds.

4 out of 5 stars sustained and complicated

For the relatively low grade, it's hard to read, a little painful, and (beta spoiler) forces a deadpoint.
