5 out of 5 stars Nice

A bit awkward at the start. After clearing a little ceiling, climb gets much better. Holds are great, even when wet (which it is a lot of the year).

I did this by staying in the corner all the way up and it seemed harder than a 5.6. Fun climb though. Dirty and awkward at the bottom and dirty at the top.

pretty cool route, it was better before the train derailment when you'de climb higher than the treetops and get to lookout over the canal. really really dirty in the last 20 feet or so.
