| Safety Rating
Another fun climb
With the tree missing this is no longer a 5.4 so the rating should be changed. I would rate it a 5.6+ but don't take my word for it since I haven't been climbing as long as other leaders. What do you think?
I think this is more a PG (but there is no PG rating) because although there is plenty of places to put gear below the crux, you would only usually have one piece in before the crux, and if that fails, you are going to the hospital for sure. Recommend using a abackup nut for safety and to reduce swing.
20070614 - seconded this climb clean
20080512 - Hangdog second - first climb of season. But I met Tom at the belay station, who was glad his single green nut held, and was glad I came along to climb up and get him, when his partner could not get the piece out and could not do the crux, .
