I thought this climb was a little harder than Deck Chairs. The climb is short but seems like solid 10.

Not a warm-up 9. I thought it was a solid 10. The holds are crimpy and shallow.

Thank you, Michael, for putting this one on the Web.
We pulled the funky open hook anchor, drilled new 1/2" anchors (with hooks), and replaced the #2 spinner today. Mark Rolofson replaced the missing fourth bolt after this route was posted. A stopper can protect a direct start.
I'd agree on the 10-...clipping the third bolt is not simple by any means, but the 3-4 moves after clipping the 3rd bolt are the awesome and def. a 10-.
An alternate start to this route (not the crack as in the main description) can be had by climbing the face to the right of the crack, making a bit of a move further out to the right and working a nice layback in a solid crack. :)
