Great route! Difficult, burly, and awkward. A #5 wild country or BD is nice for the wide crack near the top. Small-med cams protect the crux at the bottom well. This thing is definitely harder than 10a and therefore deserves the infamous 5.9+ rating.
Before I was clibing more regularly I did this route with a great pair of gloves that made the hand jams easier (maybe thats cheating) now I climb much harder but im sort of stuck here in New England, missing Mission Gorge to death!!
By bmdhacks Jan 5, 2012 rating: 5.10a/b6a+19VI+E2 5b
Can somebody explain this rating? The four of us who spent a day trying to send this route all agreed it stands minimum 10a. Is 5.9+ a joking way to label 5.10 routes?
Also note that this climb gets much harder if you're shorter than 5 foot 10 in.
