My friend was told by meetup folks that this climbs at 5.7, but she and I both disagree with that rating. I thought it was a stout 8 because of the marginal left feet half way up.

Messier rates it 5.8.

Watch out for a slightly flexing "pillar"/block on the left side of the crack about halfway up. It's beefy and attached enough to climb on, but I wouldn't put any pro in the crack behind it.

This route deserves more attention than it gets. By far one of the better moderates at MG.
