It is easy to follow a line going straight up at the top instead of going left like the directions suggest. Doing that puts you on a sketchier section with no gear placement where you have to traverse to the right to the Brain Teasers anchors. That makes it a bit harder and scarier than a 5.8 should be. I know two people (myself included) who made this mistake.

I was on this last weekend, we did the same thing. The left anchors are further away from the natural line, but more protected. We just clipped the right anchor.
