cad1999 8 Sep Lead dog Definitely lost a hold. Much hard. Had to stop to think but high feet and big right hand reach to a crimp saved the day. Reckon deserves a 6b now.

Saurusrock 22 Jun, 2017 Lead O/S Described to me by Josh as possibly the hardest 5 on Portland, maybe even the world. Conditions were pretty unfavourable, with a pretty strong wind blowing, but I got on anyway. Route was fine.

AHTang 2 Jun, 2017 Lead RP Definitely not 5a. For a taller climber with more reach probably a 5c involving a good amount of reaching and power. For a smaller climber with less reach probably a 6a involving some technical 'scrunching-up' and balancing footwork.

HendrikTBB 14 Jun, 2014 Lead dog Definitely does not feel like a 5. Does look suspiciously like an important hold has gone awol. Managed it as quite a strenuous and delicate rock over after a bit of floundering around thinking 'there must be a better option if this is only a 5!'.
