The first pitch is really good! Ends at a set of bolts. Bring the big gear. 2 #4's and a #5 will make you happy about life. Strenuous and maybe more so if you don't have good wide crack technique.

great route. the first pitch is phenomenal, but the second pitch shouldn't be overlooked either. you might even want to bring a second #5 for the crack. the blocks at the beginning of the second pitch are not as sketchy as they look. we built a gear anchor at the top of the roof before skirting around to the rappel tree, which looks to be dead but held up for the three of us.
