new leader beware: there's no way this is a 5.8. awesome route though.

Hey Jon, glad you posted this as it is not 5.8. We had been climbing a lot when we did it and honestly were off a bit. I did it a month or so ago and meant to update it.

oh great, thanks for updating it. my buddy hadn't led anything in a few weeks and he got on the climb expecting 5.8 rock and--well--he got more than he expected. =) it really is a great route though, my favorite of the day.

This is a fun climb. Very interesting, thoughtful movements on really good rock.
