Esprit de Corps


The crux is above the first bolt, stemming is useful


Climb the roof to the right of Marine Corps.


Bolts, continue up easier slap climbing, with two bolts, to the anchor of Softcore. Alternately, one can go left after the fourth bolt to the Marine Corp anchor. Thus the climb can be used to set up TRs on two additional routes.

I might call this a 5.9+ if I hadn't had insider information. Definitely not a 5.10 though. All the action is in the first 2 bolts.

Fun lead, but the 2nd bolt requires a critical hold.
