A fun, well protected, short route. I might even call it a 5.6+. The flake at the beginning looks a bit questionable, but it actually feels pretty solid. If you're up on broken blade ridge, it's definitely worth doing. The main crack is about 2 inches, but a standard rack is fine. We left a rappel sling in a crack from the top on 7/28/2012. Make sure to sign the logbook.
