Is it still 5.6?

I followed this pitch a few years ago and just after unclipping the last fixed pin, my foothold blew and I took a ten footer into the anchor--one of the scariest things that's ever happened to me in the hills. I've always wondered if I changed the grade on the pitch.

Re: Is it still 5.6?

I saw your SP log entry on this - the rock is a bit blocky/chunky indeed. Still .6 though...guess for every knob that pulls off, an incut appears :)

Easy but exposed

Finally got to this. What a great climb. I remember big blobby holds and the horizontal hand crack but also plenty of tension from the huge air beneath! Our topo suggested to go around the corner and head straight up without making a belay here. _Exposure!_
