rating: 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c R
IMO this line could warrant an R rating given the distance between bolts, the rusty Chouinard knifeblade mid-route, and the heavily polished holds from bottom to top - you can tell it gets a lot of traffic. It's not your typical moderate Montana limestone clip-up. A climber that blows the second clip will likely deck from 20 feet on the dead juniper ledge... All that and the large, semi-detached flake (with lots of chalk on it) just below the top out. Pull down, not out!
The holds are all there and the chainlink hangers seem to be in good shape but it will be a heady lead for a newer climber or someone who maxes out in the 5.8 range.
