3 out of 5 stars The Tease

I agree that this may be a bit harder than a 5.7. A pretty nasty bulge to pull if you are a "green" 5.7 climber. Mixed climb - bolts at the top. Very short climb!

3 out of 5 stars fun

agreed, a bit harder than 5.7. (soundly kicked my butt) i found groveling onto the dirty ledge to be the hardest part. good gear, just make sure you have a competent belayer as the crux is low.

3 out of 5 stars cool climb

fun, moves at the top near the bolt. I agree that it is a little sandbagged I would have called it a 5.8

3 out of 5 stars Teases you

This is only 5.7?! I have a feeling its graded that way because its so short and is frequently top-roped. The opening crack demands smearing and the use of poor feet - the opening gear placements are not easy since the crux is low. A short climb, but memorable and worth a try if you've done everything else.
