4 out of 5 stars Where was the 5.5- bit?

Nice climb, runout in places but not at the crux. Everything looks way harder than 5.5-, until you give it a try. Just before the ledge is a bit harder after my second knocked off a big foot. No pine tree at the end of P1 anymore, just a small tree and a slings behind a rock.

3 out of 5 stars Some decking potential

Be careful on the 1st pitch if this is near your limit.
