No way this puppy is 5.8-. Definite sandbag. The opening crack is at least 5.9. Get a good spot or bring a stick clip for the crux, because you'll be doing it before you clip the first bolt.

Climb the flaring crack through the bulge (crux, strenuous clip), then stray a bit right up the nice face to a short open book. Stem up the open book (5.7) to the anchors.


Below an obvious flaring crack below the far right side of the roof system.


4 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.

The strenuous start is in 5.9 territory.
