3 out of 5 stars OK route

It does take some trad gear if you want to lead it.

4 out of 5 stars Really Enjoyed

This was very short but I really enjoyed it. The start is the only tricky part and the top is a tiny bit pumpy but really fun.

2 out of 5 stars 5.8?

Guidebook states that this route has become a lot easier due to the start rising, due to erosion, almost 2 feet since the 70s (probably when it was given a 5.8 rating).

Definitely felt more like a 5.6 or 7 since I could reach the first jug while standing.
