The guide book says start at 142 meters and climb straight up. 5.4 , my butt. More like solid 5.9. Maybe I was on the wrong route. You tell me. I was to the right of Sunshine and started below the slanting crack (downward to the right).

4 out of 5 stars Durley's Return

Where ever Durley went, there must have been copius amounts of narcotics there because this is no 5.4 climb. If 5.4 trad is where you're at, better bring a diaper. I'd say 5.8 at least.

As expressed in the route description this is a killer sandbag. The start, heading up the crack is quite hard. Placing your second piece is also challenging, a purple DMM tcu fit. The rest of the route is varied and fun. Very odd that it has the 5.4 rating. The start is at least 5.8.
