Lost a green #2 stopper here the other day. It's got a oval black diamond biner hooked on it. If you're feeling generous, I'd appreciate it back!
Thank you.

Maybe I'm just a sand bagger, but I think 5.8 is about accurate. It has the awkwardness of 5.8 and the steepness but lacks the pump of a typical 5.8. I don't think that makes it more than 5.8. Apr 11, 2015

I agree it is harder then 5.8...I believe we can give credit to Choas Kozak for that 5.8 rating.... Thanks, Kozak!! Sep 8, 2009

This climb's more awkward than it looks. Harder than 5.8 for sure! Jun 15, 2009
