5 out of 5 stars Harder than it looked...

This was harder than it looked from the ground. The seam was thin, the stance above the crux was ok, not great. Lots of mud in the horizontals. I was a bit sketched, took a hang to figure it out, and then I regained my composure and finished it just fine. Once you are through the crux, the rest of the climb in easy peasy. I ran it to the GT ledge on rusty trifle.

This felt harder than a 7.
