Description:

Juggy route - feet are the key here. Good placement lets you use the big holds. Pull the right-most part of the roof to the third bolt. [Note: Austin Rock had this at 10c. Maybe this was entered in as 10a via typo.]

I agree with 10c, there are some moves on this that are too hard for 10a.

3 out of 5 stars thin, sharp at bottom, jugs at the top

I personally would leave this at 10c. I've started to do this climb in the past a couple of times and backed off because I didn't like the opening moves. I finally bucked up and decided to climb this since John and Annette were doing the direct variation from Horton's first 2 bolts. The route is not obvious and requires some technique for a 5.10 that is not straightforward. I'd say it's on par with Socks on Chick's for the grade.

IMO, not enjoyable climbing. What's done is done now. Glad to move on... again.

5 out of 5 stars Sweet jug route

Austin Rock had this at 10c. Sweet juggy endurance route. Pretty for a short route. TR under it for a cool 11c. Entering this as TR variation Horton Hears a Who!
