come down the trail, head left at the cliffline to well worn belay. Furthest left bolt line (not including route staring on top of ledge)Slightly overhanging face climb. For a 5.10 leader will likely feel very pumpy, lots of falls taken from the top!

well bolted

Nice climbing with a crux near the top. If you get to the last bolt and are pumped, you'll feel very good about yourself if you don't give up and power through on good holds to the anchors.

My first 5.10 on-sight. Fond memories.
Shawn's write-up is spot-on. Not the easiest route to break into 5.10 with.

I checked MP before deciding between this and Low Voltage, and I chose Green Piece based on the comments. Our whole group loved this route. The climbing was featured, varied, and pumpy at times. Agree completely with just powering on to the anchors. The top holds were slightly slick (it rained the day before) but still very doable. Highly recommend!

Good 5.10 for those looking to push in to the grade or those experienced in it, especially at the New. About vertical, not too many incut jugs, but good holds nonetheless. I was somewhat more pumped at the top than I expected. Fun climb.

Used this to warm up for Sancho and was surprised by the quality and pump of the route!

Good warmup if the Gumbie's occupied.
