Description 

Start under the high first clip. Climb up the short corner through a sustained start with some reachy holds and tricky feet to C1. Move past C1 and then left with much better holds to C2. Continue straight up the dihedral with steeper rock on great holds through C4 and then to the anchors.

My girlfriend enjoys leading this route and thinks it's more like 10a. There are hard moves at the start and finish, with a tricky clip at the third bolt (mid-crux). It would be bad to blow that clip, and it is awkward and strenuous, so 5.10a might be a more appropriate grade.

10a for sure, thanks, Derek!
