This route is just right of "Bombay". While you're at it, climb both; it will be a good warm-up for the day. It's steep and strenuous--just like "Bombay". The crux, in my opinion, is 5.8/9. there are many nines in the park that are easier.

Would concur that I have definitely led some 9's in the park I found much easier. Pro in the beginning was somewhat tricky as well.

If you climb this with some finesse, I think it's more in line with the grade. I thought it was great fun.

I agree with tommy, this is a great climb and it takes finesse to make it feel like 5.8 lol I jumped on this one solo after doing bombay and underestimated it a tade from the looks, but all the moves are there to make it 5.8
