New edition of the Liming guidebook calls this 5.9, regardless if you use the tree.

Ranks up there as one of the most beautiful hand cracks in Liming. You can march up the thing with good jam technique. The location is pretty amazing, too. Look right and get a sweet view of the formations across the valley! Dec 27, 2014

If using the tree start, the crux should be just getting into the hand crack. From there it's a cruise. Highly recommended triple 1's and 2's. Nov 10, 2016

Incredibly aesthetic route. Should be the first route you do in Liming. Since I love sewing, also recommend triple 1s and 2s. Nov 28, 2017
