Although this climb can be led without too much difficulty, it is generally considered a toprope problem for beginners. I would have given this a 5.7- rating if that had been a possibility on the list. Not as enjoyable as the corner route, which is fun. I gave this climb a single star out of deference to others; I personally think it's a "bomb."
