3 out of 5 stars Note to self: no more climbing slab in the rain!

Go route but only on top rope. The crux is the first 15 feet so Squid Clip the first bolt or just top rope it. I've heard many people say that this 5.8 is easier than Ego Trip at 5.7. My opinion is that Sinkso's crux is more technical than Ego Trip's but easier to do route finding through since Ego Trip zig zags a lot. However, the rest of Sinkso does seem easier than the rest of Ego Trip. There is one other mini crux about half way up where the rock gets a little more vertical and there's one spot where it's pretty thin. Overall I think it's a 5.8+ while Ego Trip is a 5.8-. Then again, maybe I should try climbing it again when it's not raining! :-)
