3 out of 5 stars Curious George

Bolts are runout but all runout clips are very easy. The 2nd bolt is easy, but beware, it would be a terrible fall if you fell while clipping the 2nd bolt. Don't attempt it unless you are very solid at this grade.

4 out of 5 stars Felt like 5.9

This is a super fun climb perfect for a 60 m. rope. I'd say it was pretty easy but the crux felt like a 5.9a. One of my favorite climbs up Rock Canyon.

I liked the exposure on the route and was actually pretty scared as I reached the crux. Great moves and a good lead climb.
it was harder than what I thought it would be (I was told this was an .8 and have since been told it is .9R) anyway a good climb and if you have a 60m rope you can rappel from the lowest chains to the bottom(barely)
