A little tricky getting started but probably 5.6 if you use the easier holds to the left. May be an 8 if you contrive your way up the arete. Easy way to set a rope for My Big Red Catchers Mitt. (Note: Little Green Apples is left of Catcher's Mitt, contrary to L to R summary on Risk Area page.)

Pretty fun - really nice warm up for the other routes right of this. Also, not a lot of people here, since it's so far down the wall. And a BENCH!!

I found this route strange. If I stayed left, it was far easier than 5.8 (5.5?), and if I tried to force myself onto the arête (more right), it seemed harder than 5.8. It was a fun route, but the natural line of least resistance is not a 5.8 to me.

Much easier than 5.8.
