Description 

Just to the right of Mario moreno II, follow the bolts up the grey face to a two bolt anchor connected by flimsy chains. This is the better of the two "Mario" routes. A more interesting and slightly harder variation can be done on top rope, by ascending in between the two routes.

Several places list this route as 5 under the French system which should correspond to 5.9, but assigning a rating of even 5.8 is being generous.

Regularly spaced bolts lead to a two bolt anchor with flimsy chain.

Super polished, and to me not really that fun as a result. I guess the OP is right that this is probably 5.8, but the polish makes it feel like you're going to pop the whole time.
