I'm pretty sure I climbed the route in the picture and both me and my partner felt it was way harder than 5.4, more like 5.7 or 8. Maybe hold have broken off? There is a lot of hollow sounding rock on this route. The walk off didn't look great (was getting dark) so we rapped down the chimney. There is a cordlette and two lockers up there if anyone is familiar with this route and wants them. The chimney to the left on the other hand seems appropriately graded and fun. Beginning leaders beware, I would look elsewhere for moderate climbs. I was only in JTree for the weekend and climbed SW Corner, Wed Pigeon & The Swift and this seemed harder than any of that. Since there were no comments on this climb (and not many ticks) I wanted to make sure no one else scrambles up there expecting an easy jaunt.
