5.6 is a bit of a sandbag rating for this route. I felt it was definitely harder than dislocation or corner geometry. Fun climb though with some nice stemming in the dihedral

This climb is not even close to 5.6. Certainly not for an onsight lead. Someone should correct the rating before some new 5.6 leader gets in way over his/her head.
