No way maybe back when 5.10 was the hardest there was. I would call the bottom section (first pitch i guess) a 9 and the the top section a 7. Wicked fun route though despite the misleading rating totally worth doing, but who ever put those bolts at the top picked a terrible place considering no more than 15 feet up is the nice and comfy ledge while the bolts leave you at a practically hanging belay check minus bolter man!
Good Sustained climbing...Lower section is definelty harder than the top - do it in one pitch...Those slung anchors are not as cool as just continuing through...Nice chimney problem up top should you choose to make it hard on yourself
Everyone I knew kept saying this is hard for the grade, but it is just normal 5.7 trad route. Route is pretty good, so don't get too scared about people saying this is hard route. I personally enjoyed Mutt much more.
Tip: Climb in 2 pitchs. Don't bother bringing stoppers. Make sure to bring TWO 60m ROPES! Don't bother with tight shoes. Bring some shoes that has some paddings on the back.
Pitch 1: Mostly small gear up to 1 and 1x#3 Camalot. I used #2 (because I didn't bring #3), but it would certainly be better with #3. Stop at the roof (has static rope).
Pitch 2: Mostly medium size gear. #5 or #6 may come useful at chimney section. Finish on the left side of the chimney with 2 bolts.
Getting Down: 1xDOUBLE rope rap from bolt hangers with chain.
God, what can I say? This is a perfect climb that reminds me of classic Jtree climbing. hard for 5.7 but super safe as the gear options are everywhere. Do it in one long pitch. I was so happy, Felt like I was back home in Jtree. Killer hand jams, foot jams. Should be 5.6+, haaaaa
