Questionable Hummus 5.8- 5b 16 VI- 14 VS 4c
A #3 ABC gemstone. The only one I've ever had, but one of the most reliable small-mid stoppers on my rack.  Scoping out the rest of the route above the short crux.  Scouting the route from a tree stem. I tried slinging the tree to protect the crux, but the swing would not have been fun so I pulled it sharp.  Kalen pulling onto the ledge above the crux.  My grandson surveying the crux of Good Intentions on toprope.
