Beam Me Up rating

Adirondack Rock gives Beam Me up on Chapel Pond Gully Cliff a 5.6 rating, but Cloudsplitter Mountain Guides rates it 5.8+. (Click here.) Any explanation for the discrepancy?

Also, anybody know what gear you need for this route and for The Right Notion?

On Cloudsplitter site, that's the "Tanager-Beam Me Up link-up", not "Beam Me Up." I think that's the difference.

Maybe it's a variation, but the route of Beam Me Up as described in the guidebook also begins on the Tanager Face.

My guess would be that the 5.8+ rating comes from choosing to start on Lifelong Affliction (5.8+) and linking into P2 of Beam me Up as opposed to starting on Silent Spring (5.5) as the route is described in Adirondack Rock.

Thanks. That would explain it.
