[Hide Comment] Good pitch to add onto schoolroom climbs. Fun slabbing, reasonably bolted. The move off the ledge half way up felt like 5.8 IMO. Dynamic move onto a little foot. Other than that the climb felt 5.6 Mar 28, 2018

[Hide Comment] As an addendum to Greg’s comment, we went back up there via a different route and saw there was a bolt line to the left of what Greg was talking about.

Both lines joined for the last 2-3 bolts, but the line on the right was significantly easier. I’d agree with 5.8 for the unlisted line on the left (both lines share a start and a finish and diverge in the middle) as you come up the line you will see a set of anchors on the right, this is the gumbyland start).
