I would argue that for the 5.10 climber, The Lower 5th has much better climbs than any of the walls up above. The climbs are more technical and quite a bit more interesting, I think, than any 5.10 on the Post Wall or Garden Wall. They are also a bit harder, as grade creep does not seem to have reached the Lower fifth yet.
The approach is nowhere near as long or arduous as I had thought. In less than 5 minutes from the Garden Wall you can be at the Lower 5th.
The trail is also quite good, with one or two short third-class sections.

|I agree this is much truer to the grade than most within the park. That could cause a problem for those that think they can send 10's at Q' Emlin, then make it to the Lower Fifth. For example, a 10b at the Lower Fifth is more like a 10d on the other walls.|
