5 out of 5 stars A great route

Climbed this yesterday with my girls and totally loved it. With the same top rope setup you can climb the easier route 5.6 to the right or move left to 5.9 or 5.11 so it's great for a group of mixed ability. Beautilful location easy to get to but not crowded.

Only downer is one of my girls got stung by a bee at the top.

4 out of 5 stars Great climb

Very fun, but tiring. Not much chance to catch your breath on this one

4 out of 5 stars I'm not sure this is really a 5.8+

I'm guessing this is somebody's idea of a joke, naming this route 5.8+. In the Falcon guide by Farris it's listed as 5.?, which normally means he couldn't climb it himself or find somebody who did.

20 feet up is a monster ledge that juts out 4 feet, then it's a straight up another 4 feet with nothing to hang on to but a finger crack 6 inches from the bottom. I tried it last weekend but was pretty much stumped. I don't know what this should be rated, but I'm certain it's not a 5.8+. I found another site where a guy said it was harder than Genetic Control which is 5.13a.

What kind of person names a route with a rating anyway?
