The local guidebook calls this a 5.2. Not a big issue; many can't find any major difference between 5.0 and 5.3.

This route is a decent lead. Big gear at the bottom and smaller up top. Just for fun, I once set a Big Bro at the bottom, though the crack's texture really wasn't that great for it. But because the climb is so easy, especially at the start, it's a good one for practicing with big cams. Jul 6, 2017

The first rule on MP is don't be a jerk. If you think something should be changed then just ask politely. We are willing to update climbs, so you don't need to act like a spoiled 10 year old. I updated this climb based on your first comment, so stop flaming the site.
I find it interesting that you are so obsessed with these 5.2-5.6 climbs that only are usually only used by beginners.. Its 5.2, Dude.. Get over it!
I have contributed 23 climbing areas and 321 climbs to MP, so it would be nice if you could afford me a mistake once in awhile..
I see you have contributed just 4 climbs in Texas.. Jun 12, 2017
The local book puts this at 5.2, not 5.3, but whatever.

Where I do take exception is with the PG 13. Huh? I have led this route and have found ample pro fro bottom to top. Lacking the gear does not make the route harder. May 20, 2017
