working out the beta for the top


From the DCA: "Easy 5.6 slab to 5.9 finish at top."

Slab felt more like 5.3 and the finish, well...I'd throw a "+" on the end of that YDS rating.

I posted this mostly for the fledgling 5.9 leader, if you're lured to this route by the description in the DCA, beware. I French-freed at the top and my V8 bouldering partner found some World Cup bouldering looking beta after a good long bit to get to the top. Much emphasis on the 9+, or I'm just a big dumb idiot.
