|In terms of climbing difficulty, Groovin is easier than either Welcome, or the Sting. It is spicier than either of them as well, but not a solo. There is a good 15+ foot runout towards the top with no gear worth it's weight, but the gear before and after are great. There's also a little spice in the beginning but nothing too serious. You have to be willing to lean to one side or the other in some spots to get gear, and some of it's tricky, but don't let the R keep you from trying it once you've already done the other 8's here.|

rating: 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c R
two-bolt top anchor say like ten feet / three meters down from the top of cliff (but above where it gets sustained steeper below).
I think this anchor is shared with "Sting".

|Since this whole cliff is well-oriented towards top-roping, I support the rating / comments by kenr. Basically it was challenging and fun.|
