I would suggest 5.8 or 5.9 as the climb's actual rating, though the FA was judged a 10a. Jul 14, 2008
This one has gotten way easy. 5.8 is the new rating. Jul 15, 2008

Thanks, Stewart. I was hoping that you'd see this. I'll make the change. Jul 16, 2008

Thought this one was a bit heady.

The crux is clipping the third bolt from a tenuous stance. Nov 22, 2015
