Not PG 13. It is easy to sew this route up.

Also, not 5.4. The local guidebook has this as 5.6. I think this is soft for a GF 5.6, but it is noticeably harder than 5.4 Sand Box Corner.

Robert,
The first rule on MP is don't be a jerk. If you think something should be changed then just ask politely. We are willing to update climbs, so you don't need to act like a spoiled 10 year old. I updated this climb based on your first comment, so stop flaming the site.
I find it interesting that you are so obsessed with these 5.4-5.6 climbs that are usually only used by beginners.. Its 5.4, Dude.. Get over it!
I have contributed 23 climbing areas and 321 climbs to MP, so it would be nice if you could afford me a mistake once in awhile..
I see you have contributed just 4 climbs in Texas..

I don't think either of my original comments comes close to violating Rule #1, but here is slightly softer revision:

This is a 5.6 in the local guidebook. I think this is soft for a GF 5.6, with maybe one tough move around 10' off the ground, but it is noticeably harder than 5.4 Sand Box Corner. I've seen beginners climb the Corner without much trouble and then struggle on this one.

As a lead, this one is okay. The start can be hard to protect because the crack is pretty irregular, but you can get a decent hex in. The gear gets better as you go on.
