    Has some fun moves. Definitely surprisingly stiffer than it looks from the ground.

    First day to the park. On-site lead Vitamin V. Wish I could say I agree with the ratings. In my very limited experience, I would give it a 5.8-. Fun climb! I'll be back for more of it and its neighbors.

    This one was definitely fun, and (I thought) much easier than it looks from the ground. Seemed about 5.9.
