Comments: Either I am confused or some other folks are. "I am Gumby", which is to the left of "Progressive Slots", is definitely a 5.5...maybe a 5.6; its a great "first lead" with really big holds. But that's not the point. "Progressive Slots" is NOT a 5.6 climb. It is more like 5.7+ or even 5.8- climbing due a short but difficult start. This is not a good "first lead" and until you get 10 ft up there are not very good holds. After you get past the start it is a fun 5.6 to the top.
