For a brief moment of time, I thought 'Cesarean Tower' was the hardest 5.8 in the park (and the world)... until the massive convulsing fits of laughter from the crowd tipped me off and someone finally told me that I'd been sandbagged by my 'local' partner onto Cesarean Direct.

It felt comfortable when I onsighted it on lead, but then when I came back with a TR I barely thrutched over the roof without falling. Some of these climbs can change drastically if you happen to miss a single foot/hand hold or mess up the sequence.
I was talking with Roger on Friday and he was saying that Jim Ericson was saying that it was probably the harderst 5.8 there in the day, and one of the harderst 5.8 cracks in the country at it's time. Just another opinion (YMMV), but one with some bredth of experience.
