This route felt harder than 5.5 to me, but maybe I was too obsessed with staying in the crack and should have been stemming the chimney. It was a good route and took great gear (larger pieces for the top). We ended up exiting to the right and around the corner to the east rather than topping out above where all the beer cans are lodged into the wide crack. The walk off was an interesting spelunking adventure that spits you out near Overbolted Rock.
