Consensus is that the rating is 5.6 As with all routes at Echo Cliffs this route will clean-up with time. The moves are entertaining and the protection excellent. Nov 23, 2009

Super easy climb, except for the fact that each step is like walking through a minefield of questionable rock quality. Belayer should be extra watchful for rocks. If you're careful, there are plenty of good holds, just be really, really careful not to send rocks down on your belayer. Jan 9, 2011

Climbed this today and 3 head sized blocks fell from the first ledge to the belay spot. Big enough to cause some serious damage. On the upside though I think there are some really good new holds on it, but belayers please pay attention. Jun 13, 2013
