5.9 face with cracks for pro, or 10a face with a bolt gains fun wide hands with tons of features on the face for feet.
Two number 3 camalots if you want to sew it up.

The 5.9 start is the variation and the 10a start is the start for the route. The 10a bit is a couple of fun moves over a small roof that is well protected by a bolt. The hand size crack with dikes intersecting it is great for folks who are new to crack climbing.

Do the direct 5.10a start. Undercling and smear to pull the roof. Fun lead and the bolt protects it very well. The crack starts out as a finger crack and widens to a perfect splitter hand crack. I put in #0.4 cam down low and then a #3 cam. Was able to back clean the #3 and just kept moving it up as I progressed to the top.
I think Supertopo only gives this route 2 stars but I give it 4. I really enjoyed it.
