Rusty Baillie's guide calls this climb 5.9 "if you go R at the roof"
"If you climb Left of the bolts at the roof all the way to the curving crack it's a good 5.10a"

just led the 5.10a version this weekend my 2nd lead climb ever, Loved it.

Call it the greater fool theory "Darn fool didn't know he couldn't do it so he went ahead and did it anyway"

Not to burst your bubble, Paul, but going left at the roof isn't 5.10, at least in my book.

As of 10/07/11, there are now 7 bolts on the route. The top is overbolted, with 3 clips in little more than a body span. The last clip is made with a bolt at your hip. It detracts from an otherwise fun route on cool rock.
