|Comments: This was a stiff route for a 5.8.... In many instances the holds (esp. hands) merit the grade, but the rock is loose and breaks in places, the route is covered in lichen and there is very little opportunity to protect. Even the second climbs looking at big pendulums in many spots if they should fall. I'm not sure I've ever been so scared and I wasn't the leader. My partner is a very experienced leader who is comfortable on lead at much tougher grades, and he got his money's worth and then some!|
