Left a .75 green black Diamond cam just above the center of the x. If you can get it out please let me know!

This is a good advanced-beginner trad lead that takes great gear all the way. Just remember as you move into the upper hand crack to keep your feet out left on the face and you will be much more comfortable.

Classically sandbagged route. Easily 5.8 maybe even 5.8+ for trad.

No way it's .8+, maybe 5.8 if you aren't where you need to be with crack technique. It's an old school 5.7 for sure, but a 5.7 at that.
