I'm not sure where the 5.8 move was on this route--very easy for the grade.

Also, the Mammoth Area guidebook says "2-inch piece." I'm not sure where this could have been placed. The only crack on the route is so low down that gear would not keep you off the ground.

I always enjoy this area, nice walk in, fun easy first route up Wrangler, but I agree with Matthew, no 5.8 move and I don't know where you could put any gear.

Lots of fun 5.6 moves. Perhaps a 5.7 move at the start?

Top-Rope: We felt we needed protection to scramble down to reach the anchor from above, so we did those moves on top-rope from the boit anchor to its left.
