The anchors on this climb are not "Mussy Hooks" and are not usable as anchors. They are open rings, expect them to fail.

I trust the anchors. Mussy hooks would be better. I don't think Russ is selling them any more.

Slightly harder than Honey Bunny but not anywhere close to 5.8. Maybe 5.6+.

As of 5/31/13 there are mussy hooks at the top of macadamia/nut-n-honey.

Whether this is a 5.7 as MP says, or a 5.6 per the guidebook, I think it is definitely harder than Honey Bunny immediately to the right. Still a very fun route, just FYI for anyone debating which to lead.
