Not as bad once you are in the hand crack  Getting busy in the crux area  The upper arete section of the climb was very airy and exciting, and--while less burly than the finger crack section--still held the grade from my point of view.  Transitioning into the upper part of the climb was certainly a challenge for me, as was finding a good stance for gear placement.  I thought the start was pretty tricky and not particularly easy to execute.
