Really good climbing with solid gear. A good choice for breaking into 5.10.
The last section near the top where the corner slabs out tends to be a bit dirty and insecure. It's easy to get sucked into continuing up this way, but once you are in the corner the arete up and slightly behind you has several jugs. Use these to pull out of the corner for a better finish. This is more exposed, but the climbing feels more solid IMO.
