2 out of 5 stars is this really a 5.5?

Gear is sparse, moves don't feel like 5.5 to me.

4 out of 5 stars Almost rained out...

After a rain day, a trip to Rock and Snow and a movie... we came back and found some wet rock and so we climbed up the descent to set up the TR.... had fun doing these multiple times until the deluge of rain hit is on the final rappel.

3 out of 5 stars Really, this is a 5.4?

Honestly, this felt much harder at the crux.

3 out of 5 stars awkward crux

climbing this is in someways a hazing process for beginners -- how much fun is it to watch them squirm up the crux?? gotta love it.
