Lee Vogel and I enjoyed this route quite a bit. A bit of questionable rock on the first two pitches, but overall solid with a sustained crux section on pitch 2 and an interesting start to pitch 4 (pitch 5 in Jerry's book). A worthwhile path to the top of The Monument.
Contrary to the guidebook, there are no rappels on the descent.
