Description:

Follow huge offwidth to top. I Climbed this and felt it was not a 5.6, I was inside the crack after you get high enough it becomes 5.6 or less but the first 20 feet or so was not a 5.6, pretty tough for the rating.

4 out of 5 stars Ran another lap

Because I could! Nice fun climb. I tried to do it as an off width but, I didn't have the energy to grunt my way through it.

4 out of 5 stars So much fun, lay it back and go!

Just cruise up the big flake and go go go until you reach the anchors. Putting both feet on the left wall is much easier than stemming.

3 out of 5 stars fun off-width climb

fun off-width climb, but Definitely not 5.6 - should be rated easier for sure.

3 out of 5 stars Bizarre...

The off width was fun, the exit was kinda bizarre though.

5 out of 5 stars Tricky!

It's not 'hard climbing' so much as just tricky sequencing. You have to really study the wall before you make each move, but there are a few places to stand and rest, so it's not as hard as all that. I see why others say it's harder than a 5.6, but I think that if you did it twice you'd feel otherwise.
