Led it today with small nuts in the crux, I used the sucker jug to place the crux pieces. Fun moves and you can bail left after the start for a nice 5.8 if you want a good warm up.

Hee Hee. The guide book rates this thing 5.8. I can easily say the guidebook is not even close.

Yea, I think the "5.8" comes from going left at the crux. Going left at the crux = Weak! Or...a nice warm up.

Great little route, I would have given it four stars if it was just a tad longer. This area is worth a visit, several quality fun routes, remote and quiet.
