A very fun climb.....fun traverse out right early on to a so-so nut that protects the move after the traverse and on your way up to the bolt under the small roof. Stellar position getting the right sequence of moves to pull up and over....moderate slab moves find you for the home stretch to the chains.

The traverse down low goes left not right

Not exactly a sport climb, definitely mixed, gear down low and bolts up high. Wouldn't want to make the traverse down low with no gear in! Definitely a great route!

Place two pieces before the first bolt and it's not PG13.

What a hoot. Bring some microcams and this is totally well protected. Do it.

As "oldbull" said " getting the right sequence of moves to pull up and over" is the crux, although shorter climbers might find the step-and-reach out left (down lower) to be the issue.
