I would give the lieback nothing less than a 5.5, where it requires some skill in technique to navigate the polished feet.

That lieback wasn't a no-brainer, that's for sure.

If it were part of a single-pitch climb that was FA'd today, it would be called 5.7 without hesitation. Still, it sews up...there's cracks everywhere.

Did Fingertip Traverse as my first trad lead about 3 weeks ago. That lieback was no joke as I never really climbed anything like that before. My ability to find the right gear and place it where I wanted to place my hand was challenging enough.

Just after the 5.3 lieback... which in my opinion is not exactly casual 5.3... kinda polished for the feet.
