[Hide Comment] I found this route slightly harder than a 5.6. Mostly through the opening moves and one other crux a bit higher. Jul 11, 2012
[Hide Comment] I agree that it was more like a 5.7 with an early crux. There is also a loose bolt on the anchor that can be backed up with a #3 cam. Sep 12, 2016
