The move off of the ramp out of that little arch in the picture isn't hard, its just a bit scary on lead with that nest of bad gear.

The move off the ground is definitely hard, but the move through the flake above the slab scares the crap out of me.

I think if the boulder problem start wasn't a boulder problem start and you had to climb into it, the grade would be 5.11. (Rick, did you recognize the climber in the blue shirt?)

This might be a tough one...

I think I remember a red alien off the slab will keep you from decking far below while slotting the nut in the corner, but won't keep you off the slab. Definitely trying on gear with the stretch to the corner and the blind placements above.

Beware the loose rock above, some climbers on the top pitch sent some tombstones raining down last season on us - then rapped and didn't offer a word of apology...

Same here. Especially after that guy broke his back falling there!

Are you thinking of Transcon? Different scary. Another route/pitch where the move in question is probably more gripping than the crux?
