To the right of "Bananarama", climb seams and face, passing a bolt, and the obvious wide crack. Move up and right from near the cracks top to anchors.

Guidebook rates this climb 5.10a. Face entry feels like 5.9, but definitely not 5.8. Route takes pro to 8"

Calling this route a 5.10 is a stretch. I give it a 5.9 start, then 5.8 for the rest.

We TR'd this one from the anchors to the right - it was certainly not 10a - pretty easy up the crack

I agree with Bruce. I always thought the crux was around the bolt on the face at 5.9. After that, the crack feels 5.7ish or 5.8ish. I led it with a #4 and #5 C4 and felt relatively safe, though I do admit to sliding one of my cams up with me.

Fun crack with decent rests. A good 'feel good' crack with many face features on either side. Big gear up higher -#3 and #4.
