Comments: We climbed it last Wednesday. That was fun, thanks for the cleaning!

First two pitches were awesome (we found the first one to be a bit more than "semi" strenuous). Third was also fun but a bit dirty (there's a wire brush at the base, maybe that was a hint...). We passed on the fourth because it was wet.

Comments: Still clean! We climbed this because we thought it was the first pitch of Davis-Holland (I know...). I was expecting 5.9! Oops!
