how are the ratings out there? I feel confident free soloing 5.6 here where I live. (Which is heavily climbed and very popular). But I hear some places out west are super stiff when it comes to ratings. I don't want to jump on and free solo a 5.6 to set up anchors at the top to find it to be a 5.8 my standard.

I'm guessing your all thinking just grow a pair, but I have only been climbing since April.

The gear is no problem. Figure out the date and pm me. That might be a great time to hit JT.

I don't mean to diss about growing a pair, I recommend these climbs because they are fab. If you FS at 5.6 back east you will have a blast leading these sub-5.6 climbs. Do em in this order: Eye, Bong and Upper left Ski Track. Your GF will love the long rap off of the track. about 150 vert! You park at Intersection parking lot, so you kant get lost. Hit three very fine summits, than turn around and exit the park to the south.....
