4 out of 5 stars Excellent route

Super fun, awesome movement, and twice as long as most other routes in the vicinity. Hard opening moves lead to a highly enjoyable, and much easier, climbing to the shuts.

The only reason this climb is 10c is the sequence leading to the first bolt -- it is insecure, tough to read, and nothing like the rest of the climb above it. Consider stick clipping the first bolt unless you are comfortable climbing 5.11, and don't let the start discourage you from trying the rest of the climb!
