Seemed harder than the climb to its right in my opinion. Fun once you get going.

Dave Barlow and myself climbed this today. We both feel its a 5.9. We both put a cam (either red or yellow alien will work) in crack under roof in the middle of the climb. We liked this one. Varied moves and makes you think some.

Thanks Larry, glad you enjoyed UV. Sounds like 5.9 is the appropriate rating from the consensus here. Hard to tell after I had toproped it a few times getting it ready. I don't remember the bolt spacing being too far there, but a cam could be nice. Do you recall the size you thought worked best?

I agree it seemed harder than the 5.9 to the right. A little headier too. Fun though, loved the stemming.
