I agree easier than the grade maybe one 9ish move to sink the hold before the roof at the start but easies up considerably after that. There is a grapefruit size rock that is loose about 2/3 the way up make sure the belayer wears a helmet as this route has a potential for more rocks to come off. Maybe it will be .9 after more holds tear off. Make sure to test your hand holds before you commit wouldn't want a loose rock ruining that OS or RP attempt!. Sep 13, 2015

Fun, but 5.9+ is very inflated. About the same difficulty as the 5.8 in the middle of the wall. Jul 19, 2014

Good route to practice leading. The route seems to be pretty clean now, no issues with loose rock or too much dirt. Lots of holds and solid feet. Seemed like a 5.8+/5.9-, a few sections you have to pull through with high feet. Oct 10, 2012

I don't think this comes anywhere near the 5.9 rating. This is very similar to Shotgun (5.6) up in Ogden Canyon.

However, it is a very fun route! Aug 11, 2012
This is a really good route. Best on the lower wall to be sure. Still a little dirty. Oct 17, 2011

Fun moves! If this route had better rock quality I'd give it 3 stars. Jun 24, 2008
This is an excellent route. Positive holds bottom to top and very well protected. The crux lies in pulling the small roof at the bottom of the climb. Jun 1, 2008
