|The tunnel is currently blocked by fallen rocks as others have mentioned. Your only choice is to step left and go over the roof via Marquis de Sade. Probably not worth the effort to trundle the rocks for a route like this.|

An interesting climb with a variety of moves.
I found the crux, exiting the hand crack onto the face above, to be considerably harder than 5.9.
Gear: Aliens and Camalots to #3 or #4.
Belay from the top and walk off left, past Tarot Wall, and back down the path to the start.

|5.9 seemed about on for what I did, and the crux was a high step, leaving the crack... however. Rather than go up through the tunnel which is presently jammed with a large rock and appears to be impassible, we traversed left under it and finished on Marquis De Sade. This was interesting and added a second crux, maybe 5.9+.|

I believe if the crux is done correctly then it's a 5.9. But if your sequence is off, it becomes a lot harder. When I led it today, I was off and took two nice whips then pulled it. Later I TR'd it and walked up it. Fun climb!
I also skipped the tunnel due to the blocking blocks and finished on Marquis De Sade. That made for a real nice pull of the roof.
