This is quite confusing. Ive seen plenty clip that bolt on banana breath which is actually about 25' up. The one time I tried this one, I climbed up the left facing corner to a flake then attempted to pull through the bulge straight below the bolt that was about 40' up.. that bulge was harder than 5.8 which I sketched on and downclimbed.. which is it? 25' to banana breath bolt or 40' to higher bolt? Either way I don't think that bulge is 5.8 if you have to pull it. Crystal Lizards (5.8+) wasn't that difficult.. Dec 29, 2011

Looks like someone clipped the first bolt on "Bannana Breath". I guess that makes it safer, but also harder. Nov 26, 2008
