|What a tremendous route! This climb is not for the faint of heart 5.8+ lead climbers. The panoramic views once at top are worth the gray hairs. There is a 5.10 on the left side of this face which is better suited for a warm up before this 5.8.|

|Climbed this today and the moves don't seem out of line with 5.8ish, but the sequences are tricky. Getting around the 2nd roof was a bit of a puzzle, and then the last move to the anchors takes commitment. Warm-up on other routes before taking this one on.|

Don't warm up on this route: even better, just don't climb it.
I really loved everything I climbed on the Grendel, until I got to this. A goofy, wandering line with at least one clip placed to hurt a shorter climber. A goofy, out of character traverse to pull a roof that is nowhere near the universe of 5.8 climbing, topped off by a rap or lower that makes cleaning the route a pain.
And then the rating is sandbagged enough that a 5.8 climber could hurt themselves. Bummer of a route. Especially considering the respect I have for the route developers.
