I think this route is more difficult than Lion King, the 9+ to the left. Opinions do vary, but this is what I believe. I only gave this route a 8+ as a rating because I may be wrong. Then again, I thought Lion King was easier than 9+. Jan 1, 2016

The overhang on this route is more sustained than it looks from the ground, with a pumpy and intimidating start. Feb 18, 2018
