Almost thought this was easier than the 5.4 next to it. It has an easier start with one tricky move up high.

Definately not easier than the one to the left. Very thin to the third bolt. 5.6 is about right.

The top anchors have been removed from the boulder from which they were originally placed. A new fixe ring top anchor was installed at the location of the original third bolt.

I brought the grandkids and the holds are a little sparce down low for them. You have to heave the little buggers up the wall a little, then they can climb! Honestly, there are routes with better holds than this available at the Gorge to teach kids, but these are just not as intimidating.
