Agree with Derek: unless we're talking about a different route, the name is "Madam Labois' Troubled Lunge".
Rating: 5.8? No chance. WAY easier than Trotsky or Old Town. Only a little more difficult than Wafer Step, if at all.
Gear: a little discontinuous, but hardly spaced out. I don't think I was ever more than a few feet from my last piece.
