An actual 5.8, with very decent climbing . . .

Caution: There's a bee's nest at the base of this climb between this and the 9. Had a climber get stung mid route, and another crew also got stung later that day.

Really fun and chill 8. Not sure what the "plus" was for.

Not sure what the "8" is for. 5.7 is a stretch.

You must be hung like a horse to tell the difference. Preach it Mr Ed, preach it

Hey Tackett, this is McGlone. I made the previous comment. Pretty much spot on with the hung part. You try climbing 5.7 carrying this thing around. But maybe it is 5.8
