Description

Appearing as if it might be quite trivial and suitable only for your aged auntie, it turns out to be somewhat challenging due to the unbalanced nature of the layback/staircase combo and small roof.

The larger story is that I was looking for easy climbs for Graduation Climb, and the staircase made it seem initially appealing. Seconding, and second ascent, by Ron Morgan who claimed "5.10! The hardest climb I've ever attempted!" Without further opinions, I'm calling it 5.9 for now.

Location

Left of Digital Dilemma, before the big slanted chimney/crack, you will find an obvious layback that seems to have a staircase built in for your feet.

Protection

2" for the initial layback, 3" for the roof, and small to 0.3 for the remainder face/thin crack climbing. Use the fixed anchors for Digital Dilemma.
