The crux is quite a thoughtful then committing move, with gear below your feet, and seemed pretty hard-8 to me.
We continued up the second pitch of Kama Sutra, which goes straight up from the double-bolt rappel anchor mid-cliff. It seemed very PG, and very 5.6++, especially right at the top ... I would not put a 5.6 leader on it, to be sure. Not sure I ever want to lead it, myself!

|I've done the second pitch of Kama Sutra, and Julie's impressions seem accurate to me. The protection is good, but there is no distinct line, the rock quality in a few spots is mediocre, there's a fair amount of dirt from runoff, and it's harder than 5.6.|
