This is more like 5.9+. 5.7 is definitely a slab score. About halfway up there is nothing but small crimpers (<1/4") to hold on to. Top and bottom one third have much better holds. Can do it on the right, center or left making it somewhat different climbs.

No way this thing fills no harder than jtree 5.7 I just am keeping it old school.

Definitely not 5.7 if staying direct on the bolt line; going right at the crux might make it that though.
