this route is actually really well protected- but does require you to be slightly above your gear (your feet are about 6"-12" above your last piece when you can place after the crux)- however, the climbing eases significantly immediately after your waist passes your gear.

very good, dont be put off by the pg13 rating if you're climbing the grade. small nuts are good for this- esp offset brass.

Great route! Very bouldery. Harder if you are short. PG-13.

At 6' the climbing is pleasant jug to jug. My girlfriend at 5'1" had to do a pseudo dyno off chips to a jug not far above a ledge PG 13 for her. G for me.

I equalized a horizontal micro cam and a small nut before making the big move off the ledge. Gave me piece mind.
