5.9 climbing to the crux, which is a couple of moves then it backs off to 5.8 or so. Should have kept the anchors lower and not put them up so high.

Dumb placement of the anchors - chews up your rope unnecessarily.

Definitely height related. I'm 6'1" with a 6'4" wingspan and I could just baaaaarely reach the moves. Unless there are high feet that I didn't find, this thing would be viciously hard for anyone short.

a 5ft 9in female i know put it down pretty fast. I never thought of this one as being reachy myself.
Anchor was maybe a little but rubby on the ledge...but my old rope endured 13 laps on it last year without any noticeable wear...
