I felt this was one hard 10a. Powerful moves off of the ground to thin fingers. The roof/buldge has a great hand jam at the top of it. It was nice to see the bolted anchors. Mostly small pro, the largest I used was a #2 camalot, however a #3 would protect the last move.

Holmes,

How tall are you? Catchy felt hard, but only for a single move for me, but I'm taller 6'1". I'd guess the 10d rating is right on for anyone short.

Bev's Tower felt pretty much on as well. 10a if you are delicate with the feet down low and use some stemming at opportune moments.

I TR'd it this weekend to the chains for the first time ever and messed up the exit move by trying to scoot out of the chimney move too early and not using an upper left hand hold somewhere. Definitely a #3 camalot is perfect for protecting the exit move to the chains.

Cheers,
Munge

i think is hands down the hardest 10a i have ever led in yosemite. the first 30 feet are thin and not easily protected. as for the top i thought that the climbing was relatively easy and lots o fun. led wheat thin after bevs tower and wheat thin felt much easier to me!
