This route involves mostly 5.9 slab climbing punctuated by a boulder problem crux (V3) at the bulge. The engaging crux sequence involves poor handholds with decent feet to make a highstep to better holds. Two stars out of five.
A higher bolt at the crux, instead of it's current position, would make this a fun lead but as it stands you're looking at a possible broken ankle.

|belayed my friend on this and C Miller is spot on. Easily can break an ankle if you fall after pulling the roof and not being able to clip next bolt. Also left ankle can easily get stuck behind rope d/t movement of passing bolt at the crux move. be careful leading this thing|
