James P. moving through the first few moves of Tin...
This is the thin crack to the left of the wider crack Dinkey Doinks. This is on the east/northeast face. A beautiful crack that eases off after the crux at the bottom.
Takes small to medium nuts and cams. large pro for the anchor.
The middle of the three cracks.

A real nice route. only one questionable 5.10 move at the start. the rest of the route is 5.9

The whole grade route feels like 5.9 or 5.9+, really. Lots of stoppers will go in this thing too. I sewed it up the whole way, continously anticipating a 5.10 crux move that never appeared.

The move off the deck is easy - after which there is some technical stuff to the horizontal crack which in my opinion merits a 5.10b rating. A high quality route on steep rock with very nice moves.
Once again the rope can be hitched around a convenient block for a belay. Or is this a dying art?

I climbed this again recently and found the moves getting up to the horizontal to be in the 10b range. Beyond that, fairly consistent 5.9 climbing to the top. As Chris says, looping your rope around the block works great for an anchor.

I really enjoyed this route. Any longer and it would bump up to 4 stars in my book.

Ditto what Locker said, but maybe more like the bottom of the route all the way up! Anyway, really had fun on this route.

A very nice route but not a letter grade harder than Taxman.

TR'd this which is worth doing if you can't lead this grade. Great climbing!
