5 out of 5 stars Variation

I think the squeeze is harder than 5.8 and is a typical runout on a wide crack in great rock, unusual for the area. To do the variation just continue climbing straight up the face to the top instead of walking south to the easy south-facing crack. Enjoy the cobbles. I'll try to get a bolt up there; Dief and Jim approved the addition.
