5 out of 5 stars Alex's Birthday

So this is a 5.9 till the last section where it is a 5.8 for sure. This is a fun route but if you can't get the start then the route is impossible. Need some upper body strenght for sure. Thats why its a 5.9

4 out of 5 stars fun

The overhanging move at the start is fun. Tell your belayer not to step near the tree or it's sap will end up on everything you own. Dallas Kloke thinks this is rated 5.9-5.10a according to his guide. I really think only the first move could be called that grade.
