the two star rating means only that this climb's quality is inconceivable to many. unbelieveable lace trimmed offwidth following variable asymmetric left facing crack. it's just sitting out there.....

Definitely better than 2 stars, and a bit harder than 5.8-. Rappel from bolted anchors.

Good route. I don't think the minus is necessary.
