rating: 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a
On-sighted this yesterday after staring at it while doing Protect the King next door. It looked interesting from the ground and not that difficult - it's not listed in the current (2010) D'Antonio Shelf guidebook. I wrote it in my book as route 113.5 on p.55.
Anyways, route requires various techniques which I thought was fun - some crack technique, stemming, and sidepulls. Plenty of bolts to protect it I thought. I'm a 10c/d sport climber and a 5.8-5.9 trad climber. I thought this was a 5.8 or 5.9 difficulty - I'll give it 5.9 since the original rating here seems to be 10a. Seeing as you're probably standing there to do the King, you might as well do this.
