Climbs the bolt line just right of Little Jerry Seinfeld. Another nice, fairly sustained route on thin edges with a start similar to LJS. Passing the second, or bulging, eye is most likely the crux and affords an interesting problem to be solved. I rate it here as 5.9 only out of respect to the FA team. They were either radical Hardmen or maybe several holds have degraded over the years. I thought Evil Eye was harder than anything on LJS and would rate it at 5.10b. Great climb! Walk off right to descend.

Ditto on Bill's comments. I'll respect the FAs 5.9 rating, but the crux is committing and unless we missed something, seems harder the 5.9
