Well protected with 5 bolts. Climbs straight up the center of the face with fun moves and edging.

At the risk of sounding like a wuss, I will be the first to say this route is MUCH harder than it's neighboring route, Lichen Life (10a). It's pretty cool that this route links together, but I found it needlessly frustrating.

I agree. The crux section of this is quite thin. Gotta trust your feet. I would call it a 5.9+ : )

I TR'ed this the first time which made it so that I wasn't worried and I could figure out where to put my feet.
It is a pretty fun climb, but it would be a little sketchy to do it as an onsite lead. the crux is in the middle of the climb.

Was nervous to lead this because I didn't want to hit the deck. That's a bit of a rough ledge. Fun climb. Bolts are solid. Chains bomber. Crimpy.
Agree that this is harder than Lichen Life; however, did the latter on a TR so hard to say. This felt a bit more than 5.9. Lichen Life has many more holds to choose from but has at least one spinner bolt (first one).

After feeling an inevitable fall coming on lead 2 1/2 bolts up, I came down to TR this one. After reading the other comments, I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels the rating is soft.
