***UPDATE*** As of Oct 17th, there are two shiny bolts at the roof. I'm not sure when they were drilled, but I was pretty darn surprised to see them... Follows the obvious brown streak up the middle of the wall past a small roof. No significant pro until the roof on lead.

4 out of 5 stars Hard at the time.

This was my first roof I think. definitely pretty difficult for a 5.8. I would rate it more a 5.9 I think. It is a Victoria classic though. Difficult to get off the ground.
