I have climbed this route tons of times, and it never gets old, one good lock after the next up the steep section and a very interesting move as you pull the mantel after the steep stuff.... If you want to practice finger crack climbing at this grade, this is a great climb....
Also, good for practicing clean aid climbing....
Start at two finger cracks making an "A" shape in the middle of the cliff.... Climb up to a detached (yet secure) block move right to another "A" shaped feature of finger cracks....
Climb these to the tricky mantel, and pull a few more challenging moves to the place where the anchors used to be (the were recently demolished).... There is an oak tree back and right to anchor to....

Not quite as nice as "Die Laughing" but equal in grade and style. No bolted anchor as the falcon guide lists but a nice big tree to the right with rap slings.

Good finger jams, good hand jams at the top, good rest in the middle, all with fun movement - great little climb!
