Description:

Great route with a few slopers. Pulling a small roof gets you to the first bolt, then up the face to the top. On the side facing away from the pinnacle. (the new Dixie Cragger's Atlas rates this 5.8+)

4 out of 5 stars maybe a tad bit more than an eight

but since there's not supposed to be any pluses or minus up to 5.10 (then it's a,b,c and d), I'd go with a soft 9. What likely gets people is using slopers pulling straight down instead of side pulls at those spots. It's all there. Enjoyed down-leading this as an alternative to rapping off after cleaning.

4 out of 5 stars Late add

This is an interesting route. There is a thoughtful move required. I'd be hard pressed to call it a 5.8+. I'd call it a clear 5.9.
