Maybe a sandbag, but then again it was my first granite crack in 7 years. Fixed lines were in the way a bit too. Smooth for sure, but solid. Beware of the bird nesting in the crack next to the rap, (s)he'll go after you!
The polished 5.7 section down low was tougher than I thought. But it protects very well.
Very stout big hands. The main show protects well with a couple #5s and several #4s. If you can't send it clean, you can yard on the big cams, as I did.
Kind of a sandbag 5.8, but what do I know.
Bomber bolts at the belay. Makes for a fun toprope.
I'll be back, Little John!
