|Real nice route. Clipping the third bolt from a stance wasn’t happening for me (5’8), so an off balance move, which felt like the crux, was necessary first. Gonna go with 10b.|

Very fun and almost worth hiking up there just for this route alone. I agree with Cho in that the crux is working the dike to gain the 3rd bolt; somewhat thought provoking but not overly difficult. Actually claiming to my partners that it may be easier than Love Bandit to the right.
Whatever the grade, it's worth climbing. Very fun, nicely bolted, solid rock and sport-anchors. What else are you looking for in a 50' climb?
