As the description states, the crux is at the start. While steep, I don't think this earns the climb a WI4 rating, I think it's WI3+ at best. Perhaps early season in thin conditions the climb will be WI4 because of the start. The majority of the climb is WI3. Rapping the route is difficult as there is no fixed protection and not much (trees or rocks) for natural anchors. The walk-off to climber's left is probably best.
This climb faces west, so it sees a fair amount of sun.
