3 out of 5 stars 5.8!

This is a very height dependent rating. My wife and I are both 5'8" tall and the crux of this route was very hard for both of us. We both had to basically dyno this to get past the crux, which is a bit precarious as the feet for these dyno are a little bit crumbly. Normally we don't even sneeze at something rated 5.8 but the 3rd bolt and the left hand pocket that allows you to clear the roof completely are really stretched out for "shorter" climbers.

2 out of 5 stars Should Be Taller

While we enjoyed the climbing and moves on Aenea the 3rd clip proved difficult as it was just beyond a comfortable reach with my height of 6' 00." The lower moves are fun, but not memorable. However, the contortions required to reach and clip the 3rd bolt are memorable and could really stress a short leader. Underclinging with the left hand under the roof and levering the carabiner gate open against the hanger it was just possible to clip. The crux move is fun and the romp up the sparsely, but adequately protected face is fun.
