I agree. I think I gave it more in the hard guide.

Fun FUN trad line. Tricky start, but you can always just start on the lay back route. Top roping was tricky. Had someone belay from the top, anchored from above Lay Back.

It's bark is worse than it's bite. Not as desperate as it first appears- fun baby.
