This is the fourth bolted route encounteded on the east wall as you hike up the slot canyon leading to the little narrows. I have not climbed the route so the rating is just what I thought it looked like. If anyone has any more info please post it in the comments so that I can update the route.

there are two ways to climb this route... you can stay to the left of the bolt line and the route goes 9+ or easy 10, depending on height. the other option is to follow right of the bolt line. This is the much harder way and looking at how it was bolted, i believe how it was initially setup. Note if you are going right. It probably went 10d, however there is a sandy side-pull flake that you used to get yourself up through the crux... this flake broke off and is gone... this route now goes a lot harder than before. Also, still really sandy, belayer may want to stand farther away to not get sand in the eyes. Both ways are fun, so try both ways!

Nate, you are a brave man trusting those thin bolts in what is in some places on these routes not much more than compacted sand! Felt like about 10d to me too (on top rope).
