I got the chance to talk to Cole Fennel about the one to the left of Love Slave. He said if you hand jam in the crack it's a 5.11a and if you do the dyno it's a 5.11d. I believe the name he gave for it was "Sienna Says."

No offense, but since when do we give one routes two different grades? If I can't crimp and I do a crimp problem, can I call it 5.15?

I don't know why you're asking me this. Cole Fennel is the author of the Arkansas guidebook and this is exactly what he told me when I asked him about the route. I'm sure when his next guidebooks are released (one for routes, one for bouldering is what I hear) he'll pick one grade for it.
