5 out of 5 stars gordy onsights Tango N Torture

Not at all like the name,its a truely sweet fairly steep slab,with great moves.Felt 5.9 to me.I think people just sketch on the fact that its a little run out.The climbing is easy,one move at a time.Just climb it!

5 out of 5 stars FA(1st pitch), Repeat ascent

I FA'd the first pitch onsight and the whole route I got onsight maybe the 2nd, 3rd, 4th or whatever ascent. 2nd pitch wasn't finished when I climbed the 1st pitch. Since doing it a like 3 times now, it may be sandbagged.... maybe not. but then again, the whole grade thing is pretty arbitrary anyway and totally irrellevent to the quality of the route. grow a pair, do the route, and enjoy. pretty sustained.

4 out of 5 stars maybe a 5.9+ or 5.10a

The first few moves in getting to the second bolt feels a lot like 5.10 then eases to 5.9 for the next 160 feet. Great view.

5 out of 5 stars Tango n' TORTURE

Awsome rock and climb! In a party of 3 (including the route bolter) we all agreed that 5.9 was most likely sandbagged. SUSTAINED! climbing on thin edges, pockets on slightly less than vertical.
