"From ledge, head up and right; stem past a sustained dihedral that gets steeper. Runout jugs lead to the anchor. Rating of this climb is debated, but eight is enough." - 2008 Ozone Guidebook
On the ledge above and to the right of Snake Face. To the right of the arete that contains Party at the Moon Tower.
Gear to 2"

Eight Is Enough is a fun climb but not a casual lead. Siddhartha makes a much better introduction to the grade and the protection is plentiful.

Very scary for a 5.8. Fun and interesting movement with great stances for placing gear. Make sure to get a few pieces of gear under the roof because the ending although juggy is a little runout.
Keep an eye out for loose rock there are a few loose chunks in the corner.

For an experienced leader setting up a TR for relative newbies, the sparseness of the protection made this route pretty cool! I thought there'd be some bolts up there so I only brought three cams (.75", 1" and 2"). I put the 2" in about 40' up and then slotted both of the other ones just below the finishing bulge. Fun!
