At the risk of sounding like a wuss, I will be the first to say this route is MUCH harder than it's neighboring route, Lichen Life (10a). It's pretty cool that this route links together, but I found it needlessly frustrating. Nov 16, 2008

I agree. The crux section of this is quite thin. Gotta trust your feet. I would call it a 5.9+ : ) Apr 19, 2009

I TR'ed this the first time which made it so that I wasn't worried and I could figure out where to put my feet.

It is a pretty fun climb, but it would be a little sketchy to do it as an onsite lead. the crux is in the middle of the climb. Oct 21, 2009

Was nervous to lead this because I didn't want to hit the deck. That's a bit of a rough ledge. Fun climb. Bolts are solid. Chains bomber. Crimpy.

Agree that this is harder than Lichen Life; however, did the latter on a TR so hard to say. This felt a bit more than 5.9. Lichen Life has many more holds to choose from but has at least one spinner bolt (first one). Jun 10, 2010

After feeling an inevitable fall coming on lead 2 1/2 bolts up, I came down to TR this one. After reading the other comments, I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels the rating is soft. Sep 1, 2010

Excellent climb. Thin, spicy for the grade. Requires focus and concentration. May 13, 2018
