Very sustained. 5.8 is my current lead limit and this was just at it. Very high quality route with excellent moves. In Gary's guide for Lost T he says there's 27 consecutive 5.7/5.8 moves. I believe him.

Plenty of good rests and safe falls. As a budding 5.8 leader this was an excellent test piece. When done go top rope Little Kisses and while climbing it think about that next step up to leading 5.9 Big jump!

A good neighbor to Little Kisses, this route protects very well. During the SAdkRF'11, Mega-Seamstress Em was able to place 24 pcs of pro evenly along the route.
If you want to learn the art of finding stances and placing gear, you can't do much better than this route.

I believe the picture I added for Little Kisses has Em on the right side with a harness loaded with gear accomplishing her feat.
