Description 

This is located at the far left end of the shady side. I starts just right of a huge detached block and follows four bolts up to the anchors. Thin crimps and balancy moves for a beginner.

If this is the climb I think it is, it sure seemed harder than 10 a/b to me. Maybe I just found the wrong combination of sharp half pad and quarter pad crimpers to blunder my way up it. Seemed like the foot work was delicate and critical. The holds get bigger near the top, but solid technique is still required, and it is fairly burly to pull up over the bulge to the hidden anchor. Still a great climb, though. My wife (who's great at thin, balancey things) loved it.
