The left-angling crack that starts a little right of center and tops out just left of the chains goes at about 5.7, and is a steep, fun, well-protected lead. Would be good for a beginning trad leader. Jul 21, 2008

I've led a line right of center that was about 5.7+/5.8- that takes good gear, as well as the harder (5.9?) direct line with worse but adequate pro. Both were fun and worth doing. Presumably if you start on the very thin face left of center you could make the climb 5.11, but it's super contrived with marginal gear (if any). Aug 14, 2008

The crack seemed more along the lines of 5.9 to me. As previously mentioned, harder lines to the left and easier to the right. Nov 3, 2008
