A good sustained 5.8. The runout up top is easy but airy. You can get two equalized cams (aliens) before casting off.
The slings are occasionally there, but not always. I've seen them twice in the past five years. If they are there; 2 60m ropes will get you to the ground or 2 50m will get you to a ledge below too much turkey. Don't count on them!

|Don't be deterred by the runout at the top if you are a competant 5.8 leader. It's a low angle slab with plenty of positive edges, casual and not scary.|
