Kira, 49 or 50", heel hooking, on a 5.5.
Well, step into the Gregory Canyon Amphitheatre, and the first somewhat large rock on the right (East) is T-Zero. There is an obvious finger crack on the left side of this which becomes a left-facing corner at the top. There are many pin scars on the bottom section. Despite the traditional 5.5 grade, short people will have a hard time getting started (5.7?) and then from there it's big moves on big holds... [secure], but 5.5??? The sequence is more physical then most 5.5s.
To descend, walk to the North end, drop off the East side, then scramble North to the ground (5.2).
A few stoppers, small tricams or TCUs plus one large cam for the exit moves. (3-4")
The TR up to can be set from above with gear or some cordelette/webbing around features.

Finally got back to this. It's tough for 5.5 for sure. It overhangs without incut holds or bomber jams. Kids 4' or less will find it very challenging.
