Just beyond the 5.10a crux, relaxing on the 5.8-5.9 squeeze. The upper bombay was fun but easier than it looks. The remainder of the climb seemed to be in the 5.8 range, maybe easy 5.9 with nice thin-to-wide hands & stemming.

Once high enough into the OW, jam left leg into OW. Hand stack deep inside to pull up. Ratchet up by working right leg on the little overhanging steps underneath the roof. This is tricky since it is very hard to look down to see your feet.

Searching inside the OW for ideas. At this point I'm camming my right leg to help hold me up. The squeeze was tight enough that after some recon I backed down and took off my helmet to make it easier to reach past my head in the crack.

Contemplating what I'm getting myself into on the overhanging 5.10a OW crux.

Cruising up the lower section. With foot bridging and occasional use of features on the walls for your hands, this wide part was pretty easy (5.6-5.7ish?)

Heading up the lower section. With proper foot & leg work, you don't really need your hands much.
