3 out of 5 stars Hand something....

Slick little jam and then you are done. Easily protected just past the crux near the top.

3 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

I think this is a typical sandbagged rating for Moss Island, would probably be closer to a 5.8 on lead just about anywhere. A deceptively easy start to a pumpy hand jam crack overhang.
