wierd, felt harder than a 5.7 to me, maybe just cause it was slimy dirty and i was attacked by all sorts of spiders and their respective webs. I blew the lead down low, got it on top rope, can't say I really want to go back and lead it clean.

Crux was down low; pretty cool problem to figure out to get to the tree. Fun up high; not the greatest quality.
