2 out of 5 stars Short route

Not sure I would say it is a 5.9, maybe a 5.8, and even 5.7+ if using more than just the crack.

3 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Gear crack with bolted anchors.
Technically I seconded it, but the leader cleaned his gear while being lowered so listing it as a TR. None the less, a great fun climb.
Deffinately not 5.9+, to me like 5.9-.

2 out of 5 stars not that great

OK crack I guess but the hollow and loose plates near the top should really have been cleaned off before this route was ever recorded in the book. This route is only 5.8 and the North Face is 5.9 according to a consensus of us at the crag at the time.
