Dane high on the left slab.

Description 

The left hand bolted line on the Hell wall slab. A v2 move will take you past the first bolt and into .10-ish climbing to the anchors.

Seems like quite a sandbag at 10a V2. Perhaps easier for taller people, but nonetheless, in my opinion there are 2 or 3 moves on the route in the 11 range, including the beginning sequence that seems like hard 11.

I guess V2 is 11a, so maybe that is what the FA meant. It's a somewhat desperate V2 start followed by 5.10 climbing. Meh, whatever-- decent route anyway. Took me a number of tries to get the start sequence.

I'm not sure if the rating is off, or if my tiny crimp/slab technique is way off... But my partner and I climb at the 5.12 range, and neither of us could pull the crux... it's easy to cheat if you grab the draw though. The remainder of the route is sustained (at an easier level) and very fun.
