An interesting, albeit short route. Edge and crimp past two bolts to a large ledge that provides a full rest. For the next 20 feet follow a seam using sidepulls, gastons, and crimps. The route relents just before the chains. I personally found the crux sequence worthy and the climbing full value. The route overhangs 2 feet in 45 feet of climbing.
Use care when clipping the 4th and 5th bolts as a botched clip might result in hitting the ledge. I couldn't determine whether my nervousness clipping these bolts was real or perceived.
