Crux is getting over the roof bulge. It may be a bit height dependent and felt like the hard end of 5.9 to me (under 6'). Fun moves though.

Some Folk's think these climb's are a grade easier than posted. All these climb's were graded on a consensus from at least 6 different Climber's. I know one thing for sure that this climb is no 5.8. Then of course some Climber's are technically strong and just float the crux and then they down grade it!
