Short and sustained 11a, it is good to have a little beta before comitting to the lead. Really liked the small dyno near the top to the ledge. Lots of fun, high quality route.

David, here's a constructive comment: How about you go on up there and give it a good brushing.

The lichen does not need to be brushed, because all the holds are lichen free. The bolt hangers are even painted to match the lichen!

Do not be tempted to stem against the rocks behind you at the lower crux, instead get out onto the subtle arete. This lower crux is about 1/2 the fun. The upper crux is 11 minus-ish. Fun, short, nicely bolted.
