I'm sure this route would feel a lot more cruiser if I had it wired, but as it stood, this route was awkward and hard.

Agreed. Book calls this and the two routes to the left 10- yet describes them as continuous 5.10 climbing. We hit them to "cool down" at the end of the day and found them all to be quite sandbagged! Far harder than the other easy 10's I've encountered at Ten Sleep.
