Description 

Climb blocky stuff with ease for five to ten feet then follow the crack and find the crux about 3/4 of the way up. My vote is 5.8, but I've entered the guidebook rating of 5.8+.

Location 

The fourth crack counting from the climber's right (not counting The Klinger.)

Protection 

Standard TR set up. There are solid cracks for your anchor on this one (big 3"-4" cams helpful.)

If stoppers and an occasional tricam are your thing, then this is a good lead. There were probably some places to jimmy a cam into, but it can be done without them. Good cracks for anchor above
