Fun first move. Not all that great after that.

The grade on this is pretty accurate, except the dirty V3/4 boulder problem start. Also, the anchor is two rusty nuts, with little opportunity for a backup. Classic.

I don't know if I'd call that first move "fun", but it was definitely hard! This is a great example of, "How the heck do you grade this?" That start would be impossible for a 5.9 (or even 5.9+) climber, although they would enjoy the rest of the route. Tough call...
