Actually to short. Wouldn't want to fall on it.

3 out of 5 stars 2 years later

I tried when I first started climbing, I didn't get it but determined that I would come back. 2 years later I walked up it no problem. Finally done.

3 out of 5 stars Easy at the bottom, sketchy at the top.

Stiff for the grade, unless I'm missing some obvious holds.

2 out of 5 stars Hard for grade, scary lead

Yikes, falls would not be clean until the last bolt. Bottom is 5.6 at most, but top is quite hard for the grade - technical climbing, precise footwork required.
