Get past the first 3 bolts, and the crux is over. Halfway up, most folks stay left and work the left-facing dihedral. However, the direct line is doable, but the difficulty increases significantly. Pushing directly up the face would mean 12-ish climbing.
Blood is currently the 2nd route from the left on the North Wall. Red Hangers.
After the crux, a nice section of chossy jugs lead...

This is a really long & fairly sustained line. The upper headwall seemed pretty spooky to me. I would not loiter around the base of this route while someone is climbing.

If you manage to get past the bottom 3 clips with out getting flash pump...it's in the bag (the rest is like 9ish?). The top can be pretty loose and dirty up right so stand clear at the bottom like Mono said. Good views from the top.

Route has cleaned up pretty nicely, but it is a good idea to have the belayer wear a helmet.
