Steep and strenuous. This route is located in the approximate center of the "Short Wall". The crux is awkward as apposed to "graceful". Make sure you have solid pro under it.

There is excellent pro and a no hands stance before the crux. The crux is harder and more awkward than it looks from the ground. Take aliens or tcus, small to med nuts, and maybe a hand sized piece if you don't want to run out the very easy top half.
