3 out of 5 stars So I guess this wasn't a 5.8

Didn't look at the guidebook and for some reason got on this thinking it was a 5.8? Well, I thought it felt a little tricky. I too would be interested in knowing the rating if you hang at the tree. It certainly wasn't a 5.11 but it wasn't an 8 either...

4 out of 5 stars very finesse, and not really a 11a

... but sure helps to boost the ego.

The crux is definitely at the tree. To make it worth the rating, you have to go straight up towards the bolt. Pine tree is OFF!!! Move your left foot along the crack behind the tree to give a higher stance for clipping, but otherwise palm your way up to the bolt and move your right foot onto the ledge.

Very balancey, but super fun. Shoulda led it, but still feeling the altitude and the surgery. Poop.

3 out of 5 stars Probably better to follow the bolt line

Who knows what the climb is rated when you hang a left at the tree because you can't see the bolts with the sun in your eyes?
