I consider Pine Box to be harder than Congrats, especially on lead. I also consider the "5.9+" rating to be a deliberate sandbag. I say 5.10b. Dec 4, 2004

Solid "Lake 10." Jay's comparison to "Congratulations" is apt: the holds are thinner and the moves to piece them together require more precision than "Congrats," but the hard part is also shorter.

Pro: Medium nuts and small cams, except at the crux where a very thin wire or a #2 Ball-Nutz keeps you from looking at an ankle breaker. Sep 29, 2008
