First outdoor sport lead. Quite a stiff opening m...
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.

I couldn't start this...not only is it a flaring crack, there is a small bulge right above, blocking good feet and offering naught but slopers for hands.
