I agree this is really more like 5.7, maybe a little harder. There was one move up high that was a little tight; I'd call it the crux. But pulling the mini-roof down low was the most fun.

Definitely a good route, but like a lot of routes I've experienced in NJC, a lot of the key flakey holds sound hollow and feel as though they will certainly break off on someone down the road as they continue to be climbed. I enjoyed the route, but that's why it only gets two stars. There are other better routes around NJC with much more solid feeling holds.
