The guidebook suggests a 5.7 rating for this route but it felt to me like a solid 5.8, talking to other climbers that sent this one that seems to be the general consensus as well.

Classic! If something this short could be considered to be. Wet and wide in plAces.

The old guidebook lists it as a 5.8. I think it's been sandbagged. Definitely a 5.8. Great climb. Kind of a bouldery start, but eases up a bit higher. Takes gear well, a couple of #3's and #4's will get you up the majority of it. Threw a number one in up top to protect the move to the anchors. Good times.

no way its a 5.8, compare it to hackberry 5.9-,deft jam, 5.9, wma 5.9+. its nice and low angle with SOLID feet and good jams. If you think that is a sandbagged 5.7 good luck out west.....it was changed to be comparable to crack Meccas of America. id say the ratings are still a little soft compared to Lumpy, Eldo, Red Rocks, and J-tree. not bashing just sharing some of my experiences. Great route good gear like Jon said

Free soloed this route today on sight. Naked. Very fun short crack! Would make for a good practice route for new crack climbers.

This crack accepts mainly 3's the whole way up, save for a .75 placements halfway up. Dont be like me and have to place 3 cams the whole route - definitely had some mildly scary runout due to lack of gear, but was an easy climb overall. Tiny bit awkward at the start due to my hand size
