[Hide Comment] Oooh...Brings back memories.

I made the mistake of leading this as a brand spankin new climber, after reading John Longs "How To Rock Climb" book, and only had top-roped two routes, and led one 5.7 prior to hopping on P.I.P. It was VERY SCARY for a new climber/leader. Good thing I didn't fall because it seemed like there were only 3 bolts on it (?). A good climb though, as long as you're not a newbie leader.

It seemed way harder than I thought a 5.8 should have been at the time. Maybe because I'm 5'2". Harder for short people, like Matt mentioned? ; ) Sep 28, 2006

  5.8
[Hide Comment] maybe this was a 5-8 at one time but it is reachy and i.m.o a little harder than 5-8 ,perhaps holds have broken off , also beware of a couple of jugs so hollow sounding that you can beat them like a drum. i agree w/ gigette note a good one for someone just leading in this range, same go's for the 5-9 to its left.

[Hide Comment] I'm 6 ft and also thought it harder than 5.8. Back when I did it I thought 5.8+ / 5.9-. My notes say something about "climb a bit left of bolt #2". Swain drilled these on the lead by hand, so bolts are at stances, not necessarily exactly at/on "cruxy" spots. Apr 19, 2017
