Not sure how this is a 5.7 or even an 8. It felt far harder than the two 5.9s and 10a immediately adjacent which always had much easier smearing with better feet on lower angle slab with handholds. My smearing may be poor, but the first 20 feet is extremely limited for your hands so you pretty much have to just walk up the pretty smooth surface and it isn't that low angle. Once you're above the 3rd bolt then there are more options for hands and it gets easier, but the tiny crimps will break off though you can always cheat and use the dirty crack to the right. Luckily the bolts are frequent because it's dirty and slippy. Not fun, and I'd only do it if you really want to force yourself to work on smearing technique without any hands. Sep 17, 2018

Right mussy hook at the anchor is missing its gate. Climb feels harder then 5.8 if you stick to the slab. Feels easier if you use the dirty crack right up top. Sep 23, 2018
