The .10a rating seems a bit soft, given the number of rests on this route. There is an awkward, bouldery crux at the bottom. But it is so well bolted that you run the risk of z-clipping! Some nice body position moves toward the top and a finish that makes some flop onto a roof like a seal at the zoo.

It's a shame this route was bolted, there are so many great gear placements on the entire route. To me the line is so obvious it's hard to beleve someone didn't lead it on gear before someone came along and bolted it. On a different note it provides a good crack to climb up to for the sport people who don't normally get to climb stuff like that.

I Love Clippin' Bolts! Sinker holds in cool triangular pockets, gets nice n' steep after the ledge.

Put your right leg in, put your right leg out, do the hokie pokie and pull yourself up out. Enjoy.
