A fun, granite face climb with some varied moves.
Start up on big holds with fun liebacking from flakes to a good rest just under the fourth bolt. Crimps and thin feet are the crux while getting past the fourth bolt.
Climbing through the fifth and six bolts is additional fun using some larger-but-not-entirely-positive holds. Good balance will see it through.
The bolted line to the right of the very obvious Dogleg Crack. Hike to the right past the face containing Z Crack and up the hill a bit to the base of Dogleg Crack and Hind Quarters.
6 bolts, chain anchors.

It is possible that a hold has broken above the 4th bolt, but there is no way this route is 10-.

This is definitely not 10-. The crux may be well-protected, but it is quite challenging considering it involves bumping from one very thin crimp to another crimp that is completely out of sight while maintaining a smear and a really crappy vertical rail for left and right feet respectively. My rating is 10b/c. Otherwise, the rest of the climb feels like 10a. The possibility of a hold being broken or something definitely feels like it may be true...

I think that this route is 10a if you are over 6'. maybe much harder if under 5' 9". I really like it and I am not much of a sport climber, but I am 6' 2".
