3 out of 5 stars Tricky second bolt....

This is a tricky climb at the bottom as is with most climbs at BRR it seemed to get way easier when you get closer to the top.

4 out of 5 stars Nice Crux!

I think overall this climb might be easier than a 5.7 but the crux move is tricky, especially if you are short. Crux move seemed more like 5.9 so I guess if they cancel each other out and 5.7 is pretty right on!
