MAYBE 5.8..try putting your hands/fingers actually IN the crack instead of like the pic.

It's a seriously tough move. The crack is JUST slightly too wide for a proper hand jam; plus the angle is kind of sideways. Meanwhile your legs are not under you, the only place they can go is way to the side, so it's like a layback and you are basically groveling for some stability. To the right is a mean slab and it's all just pretty desperate.

Very stiff climbing for 5.8! I took a few whippers down off the roof!!!
