Brent,
Can you add a little info. On the description just curious looks like a good route. Maybe someday.

Mike,

The route has an initial roofy bulge pull that has difficult, small holds and the next 40 feet or so are delicate slab moves followed by terribly small pockets that you might have to throw for based on your height. The real crux is towards the top. Get in contact with Lee, he can spray ya down. The route is super-cool and definitely worth doing but I haven't gotten very far on it.
