Fun climb & a good warm-up, but very bad bolting. After the first 2 bolts you'll follow the holds, which stray about 2-3 meters left of the bolt line (i.e. pendulum fall), coming back just to clip the next 2 bolts, which are off-route. There's evidence of the bolt line being moved left (empty 3/8" hole), but certainly not enough. It isn't a big deal if this climb is within your ability, but do bear this in mind if 10+/11- is at your limit.

The FA rates this climb as 10+, but it feels like 11- to me. Although it isn't as sustained as Robby the Robot, the crux moves seem to be the same difficulty. Would be nice to have others' opinions as to whether it's 10+ or 11-.
