4 out of 5 stars Short workout on lieback technique

Most fun climb of the day, fairly short and requiring lieback technique to work up a perfect dihedral for the upper half of this 1-pitch route. the crack changes sides about 2/3 of the way up. This one gave me confidence that I can manage a somewhat sustained lieback. To me it feels more like 5.8 though.
