Right-slanting handcrack on left side of the formation. The old book says 5.7, but that's the ULTIMATE sandbag! Now upgraded to 5.9+ in new book. Mininal gear at the bottom, but easy enough to compensate.

Descent Options:

Walk-off to climber's left or right (easier).

1 out of 5 stars 5.7?

Sandbagged at 5.7, measly pro down low, and not all that interesting, but if you're there.......

4 out of 5 stars def. not a 5.7

Protection was easy enough at the top, but it's far too sustained to be a 5.7!
