Comments: Difficulty can vary quite a bit depending on the line you take.

Comments: I'm not exactly sure how the route finishes. It seemed like there were multiple ways you could climb the top part. All of them looked pretty easy but some a bit more runout than others for a new leader.

Comments: I suspect that the folks calling this 5.7 or barely 5.8 are either on the tall side or climbed off to the left or right of the bolt line. That being said, I don't think it's 5.10, and my daughter who is 5'1" agrees. Would have been a lot more interesting as a mixed line and quite safe with 1 or 2 bolts.

Comments: I think the rating on this is height dependent. I'm 5'8" and 5.9 feels about right. If you're tall the boulder problem start won't feel like much at all. But if you're really short it will feel more like a V2 move.

Comments: The Williams guide lists this at 5.10b and Boing at 5.10d but I thought Springer felt quite a bit harder than Boing (which isn't 10d IMO).

Comments: Have to agree with Neal. Quaker State is a lot more sustained but no really hard moves compared to the crux on Nuclear Crayon.

Comments: This is an overlooked climb. A nice line with interesting moves and probably the longest single pitch at Moore's. Some lichen in spots but would clean up nicely if it saw more traffic.

Comments: It's because of that upward pointing flake below the start of the route. I think even a short fall onto it before reaching the potential pro would be pretty bad. A few bouldering pads might make it more reasonable.

Comments: I think the guides are wrong. The bolt on Face Value is directly below the Fleet Feet anchors not well to the right of it as shown in the books. Clipping the bolts on Fleet Feet would not make much sense.

Comments: Abel you might be right. The overlap is hard for me to judge. Pulling directly over it is very hard (at least for me) but there may be a better sequence.

Edit: After getting on this again and seeing other members of our party give it a go it looks to me like it's height dependent. For taller climbers the slab may be the hardest part and 11a is about right. For shorter folks the overlap is the crux and will probably feel harder than 11a.

Comments: The protection description for this climb is not quite right. You can use small to medium cams and/or nuts to protect the moves getting to the bolt on Great Brown Way. While not the technical crux of the route most people would probably want some pro for these moves.

Comments: I loved the route and while it wasn't a gimme I didn't think it was particularly sandbagged. As long as you have decent stem technique that is. If you don't it's going to feel really hard.

Comments: The moves at the bottom are fun but harder than 5.7 and I have to agree that the upper part of the route could definitely use some cleaning up ...
