2 out of 5 stars Tricky - Don't be fooled - Sandbagged 5.7

I'll echo what others have said below - the only way this MIGHT be a 5.7 is if you do NOT stay in the middle. Opening moves are at least 2 grades harder than 5.7. Above the first bolt moving from the right to the left side of the route is also at least 5.9. Additionally, there is a real risk of decking while at or slightly below the second bolt. From the second bolt to the 3rd the route eases, but probably still not 5.7. The top is 5.7. Cool funnel up and over. I wonder how it was made.

3 out of 5 stars Little pocket

An ~5.8+ start and finish if you are in the middle the entire route. I think the 5.7 start runs to the right.
