Comments: this route is really good. the start is easy to find. it's a good idea to practice some slab climbing in TM beforehand. we did the first 8 pitches. your feet will hurt, so bring comfy shoes...
the bolts are perfect. the climbing is mentally tiring and runout. The 5.8 is probably R/X, the 5.10 is alright but still heady.
no single bolt belays without other gear on the first 8 pitches ..

Comments: this has been done clean. if you don't know the route, it'd be about E4 6a that way.
the gear is good every that it's hard-ish. bring enough small to med. and 1 #4 cam plus the usual stuff.
