actually Williams rates it a 5.4, which i think is fair. though probably not for the new 5.4 leader. P2 does require some focused route finding and either double ropes, or strategic slinging if you are on a single. the moves on P2 are committing and thrilling just bc of the exposure- the holds and gear are all good. when i did it, it was a soaking wet waterfall, which made it a bit more exciting!! however a new leader should watch out for this and make sure that P2 is looking dry. climbed with beau. he led P1 and i led P2 and P3.
