Luanne on Family Affair

Description 

Fun, fun route. Great amount of good movement for the grade; steep start, then slabby jug hauling with nice long moves to the anchors.

Location 

Rightmost of the three bolted routes on the wall. Start is steep.

Protection 

Bolts.

I suppose I'll be the guy that says it: I find this route very challenging for the grade. Am I just not seeing a move? (did a hold break?) Pulling a reachy move off a tiny crimp on an overhang with weird feet just doesn't feel like the other 5.8s to me.
