This is a good route, but we found the start rather challenging for 5.8. I suggest 5.9 for the first moves; then it eases up.

Harder than a 5.8 at the beginning, definitely. Actually, because of the spray paint for the first few feet, we start on the penis rock at the end of the corridor. If Little Teepee is rate @ a 5.9+, It's at least a 5.9 or 5.10

The anchor and rap ring on this climb are loose.

Fun climbing up positive features with a cruxy thin start. The anchor consists of 2 bolts with a solitary quick-link on each hanger which is less than ideal; rapping off is recommended to lessen the damage to your rope.
