Description:

Controversial rating... Topo and FA says it is 5.8 but most climbers rate it at 5.9 for the crux. The rest of the climb is easy 5.6. Top rope anchor can be built by a path to the right of the crag and you have to traverse using a via ferrata. Cool!

3 out of 5 stars wtf?

Rock is greasy! don't think your feet will hold as if you were climbing granite.
10 draws + anchor.

3 out of 5 stars one tough move

Mostly pretty easy, but with one 5.9ish move. It is well-protected, though, with a very well placed bolt for the tough move. The lead feels as safe as a top-rope.
