For a 5.6, this is a pretty rough route. I thougt that 'Big in Japan' was easier than this on.

Yeah, it was not the easiest 5.6 I have come across but a very nice route. Climbed on lead with one foot wrapped up.

When I lead it, I thought that it would probably be harder than 5.6, too, but the kids I took up there (none of which climbed higher than 5.7) had no trouble with it.
