I found this line to be much easier than 5.5. I couldn't really find a trad line on the main face that was 5.6 or even 5.5. Kind of soft ratings if you ask me.
That being said, good rock, good pro, and reasonably fun, especially with that most commanding view behind you!

|Fun climbing with a spectacular view the whole way up. I wouldn't necessarily recommend as a first lead due to a few run-out sections and tricky gear placement - very little that is straightforward. With that said, bomber parallel cracks at the top for an anchor. Also worth noting that there is lots of lichen on the rock about halfway up. Not sure if this is due to lack of climbing or if the route bears right. Either way, be prepared to move right to avoid this crunchy section!|
