|If you love handjams and love crack climbing, this climb is actually easier than the 5.7 to the left (Rentier).|

|I must not love hand jams or crack climbing (actually I know this), cause I found Rentier to be much much easier. Maybe it was the 90 degree day but the inside of the crack was slick as hell. I'm pretty sure I did better on One for the Road (10d).|

I tried this climb on TR when I was first learning how to climb. Flailed all over the place. I think I might have even punched the rock a few times. -not a good thing to make a habit of- Fail. Didn't make it up.
Finally made it back out to Tahoe a few years later and nailed it.
This crack loves gear. Take something a bit bigger for the top.
Great Climb! Have Fun.
On a side note, the crew next to us decided it would be a great idea to take a 24 pack up to the crag to drink and climb. I don't know about you, but I like to do my drinkin' after I climb. We didn't stick around to see how it turned out. Hopefully OK.
And hopefully this is not the standard for this crag...?
