rating: 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b
|I thought this route was a grade or two harder than 5.6. Thin and tricky at spots, especially on the first pitch. Double ropes will just about get you down in one rappel.|

I agree. I put it in as 5.6 since the guide (and thus the FA-er's?) listed it as that, but (personally) felt it was 5.6+ to easy 5.7.
Of course, on slab like this you can miss one crimper, or one foothold, and what is 5.5 with the hold becomes 5.7 without it.
MtnPrjct is now set up to take into consideration the "suggested ratings" posted by other climber's when they "tick" it off, if enough folk think it 5.7 the "official" rating will change.
