A fun little route that is a change of pace for the area. The guide book calls it tricky to protect but I thought it protected just fine. There's plenty of good gear as well as numerous chock stones, pinch points, and flakes that are slingable. The only caveat is that even a well protected fall could be very uncomfortable because of the blocky nature of the climb, so I wouldn't call it a good beginner lead. I would recommend either walking off or moving your rope to another climb rather than pulling it after you're done, lots of spots for it to get stuck.
