Description:

second route left of the wooden staircase, pretty good sustained 5.9 climbing. guide lists it as 5.9+ I believe, but the start is harder than that. I cheated by traversing in off the ledge to the right. was quite hot and humid which didn't make a crimpy start easier. rest of the climb was really good though.

Descent Options:

fixed anchors

3 out of 5 stars Really touch start

Maybe at some point this was a 5.9, or maybe the start doesn't count towards the grade in the era of stick clips. Given that the rest of the climb is easy 5.9, it would be ridiculous to call it anything esle. But reachy, greasy and polished as the start is right now, it felt more like a 5.11-5.12 range for me.

3 out of 5 stars Ugh

BRUTAL start in anything less than perfect weather--nobody in my party was able to get off the ground. Once mobile naturals got you past the start the climbing was nice on classic RRG shelves up to a second crux with thin, oddly-placed holds to the fourth bolt.

Overall I'd say at least 10a/b, unless I was missing something, and the consensus was that the start was at least V4. Definitely a downer of a route--spend the whole time going "when did I get too fat and weak to climb 5.9??"

2 out of 5 stars good

hard start right off the ground. I would call it 10a. Just for this move alone, the rest of the route is mellow.

4 out of 5 stars Very hard start, rest is good

Very difficult start, also my friend fell 3 times clipping the 4th bolt. It was our group's last route of the day.
