I did "Back To The Future" in the nears last Monday. The purple guidebook has this as 5.8 G. The route is closer to R than G. The guidebook describes two pins through the crux. There was only one when I did it, and that pin was truly worthless. So once upon a time this may have been G, but unless I missed a gear placement it is no longer G.

Did it the other day and had the very same reaction. Not "G" rated for sure!
