it prob is no more than 5 bolts and barely 45 feet tall. Gary Barnett who is the heaviest guy I have ever belayed, crushed it. tricky crux beta and even when you know it, the move can be frustrating, but soooo satisfying when you stick it.

Possibly easier if you're over 6'2'' and most likely harder if you're under 5'10''. Crux entails getting past a sizable chunk of rock with no holds ;)
