Comments: There is a thin hand crack on the second pitch that sparkles like camara flashes in the light...trippy.

Comments: First pitch is good, gritty, sharp and worth a trip to the first anchors. The easy section in between the two cracks sorta detracts from the fun jamming.

Comments: I just have to weigh in with the comments of 5.8 and 5.9 being a "beginner" route.
5.9 used to be it, add a plus if you knew it was really hard or funky. I don't see a point of putting a bolt too low either, unless you plan on stepping on it to get up to the "real" clip. Stick clip it if you need to, but what's the point of having a low clip that won't keep you from hitting the ground? ie. Dog Pile or Winkey & Waxman.
