Begin in the small cave and climb up into the crack. Chug up ever smaller features until the crack ends. Powerful moves through a pocket and a slopey rail lead to a cryptic 5.11 finish. Sustained steep (the same angle the whole way) and pretty long. Apparently a good route to onsight if you climb the grade. Easy to read?

Overall a great route. Not as easy for an onsight as the description might mention with lack of chalk and traffic on the route. Super fun though. Probably about the same as EKV and Crown Prince on the difficultly scale but not quite as good. 4 stars in an an area surrounded by 5 star classics...
