This climb's more awkward than it looks. Harder than 5.8 for sure!

I agree it is harder then 5.8...I believe we can give credit to Choas Kozak for that 5.8 rating.... Thanks, Kozak!!

Maybe I'm just a sand bagger, but I think 5.8 is about accurate. It has the awkwardness of 5.8 and the steepness but lacks the pump of a typical 5.8. I don't think that makes it more than 5.8.
