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?
