This is the 5.5 version of P4 on 'Crying Time Again' - knobs galore! Don't let the easy grade/climbing deceive you: the first bolt is a bit off the deck and the lower angle climbing between the 3rd and 4th bolts is a bit runout. There's a great horizontal slot between the 6th and 7th bolt that takes a perfect yellow/green alien or similar sized gear. Single rope rap with 70m rope or double rope rap!

The runout between bolts 3 and 4 didn't really bug me, but a fall before clipping the first bolt would be serious. It takes one small cam (.3 or .4) near the top. You'll be glad you carried it.
