The route is a great first pitch for Kite Flying Blind. The belay at the end of the pitch is directly below KFB, and the climbing from the belay is fun bolt-protected face climbing that leads up directly into KFB.
The first bolt is a little high up, particularly considering the elevated start. It is helpful to put a nut or cam in the crack before the first bolt. The crux is just after the second bolt - the rest of the pitch is fun ~10a continuous face climbing.

Broke a pretty large block off of the section between the last two bolts of the pitch yesterday (should see a fresh scar on a very useful foothold). Just make sure your belayer's aware in case more of it wants to come off.
This is still a great route though!
