The first 1/3 of the climb is quite a bit more difficult than 5.8, possibly due to holds coming off. That section (from the ground to about the fourth clip) is probably closer to a 5.9+. Sep 3, 2015

Some of the rock on this wall pulls off easily so tap your holds before you put weight on them. Apr 1, 2013

"Morning Glory" is more sustained and the bolts are more widely spaced than the adjacent route, "Bushwacked." While both routes have attained a consensus 5.8 rating, "Morning Glory" remains the sportier route. Although established in 1995 and having numerous ascents many of the holds continue to have a loose feel. Sep 10, 2012

I believe the location descriptions for Morning Glory and Bushwacked are reversed on this site. According to the Santa Monica guide, Bushwacked is the face-climb immediately left of B-line and Morning Glory is the (harder IMO) climb that "starts behind bushes just right the hand crack". Both are rated 5.9 in the guide, but Bushwacked is definitely easier and way more fun. Mar 10, 2012
