As far as difficulty goes, the first ascensionist and I thought that the line felt like V7-ish, but the local strong man Pi came by for the third ascent thought it might be more like V5 so Im throwing V6 up for now. Of course the boulder has just been developed and as the holds get cleaner it may feel easier. Looking forward to hearing what the rest of you think.

Also there may be a line that tops out straight up the crack, but it was wet, dirty and we thought the better line (probably) was following the arête. In reality it may be possible to top out anywhere along the arête, but we felt the semi-dish shaped jug about 2/3rds up the right side of the arête was an obvious and easier spot to top out. That said, there is also a possibility of an extension that follows the arête all the way for some added climbing and added difficulty. So go get it!
