[Hide Comment] This is actually on the main west face, just to the right of Toy Boat 5.7, and is the rightmost route of 4 on the west face.

SD admin fix the route description above? Thanks. Jul 16, 2015

[Hide Comment] First bolt is maybe 15-20 feet up, but the climbing is pretty easy to that point. Jun 15, 2016

[Hide Comment] Maybe I was off-route, but I felt this was WAY harder than 5.6. Nov 25, 2018
