I don't necessarily think this route is any easier than Pre-emptive Strike... I think this route pulls some more obvious moves that are physically more strenuous while Pre-emptive strike climbs on pretty ambiguous holds making it seem like it's harder to figure out than it actually is.

Even as obvious as the moves are, they still make you think which I believe makes this a superior route to Pre-Emptive Strike.
