Easy, ledgy holds lead to tougher climbing up high, with some balancy slab-esque moves.

Not very highly rated, but I loved this climb. The first 30 ft are a bit tame, but the last 20-30 ft are a lot of fun. Big, powerful reaches on thin crimps. Fantastic. Holds leading to the anchors are a bit slopey and confusing but just take it slow and keep breathing and you'll be there soon enough.
You do have to trek out right at some points, so be careful of falls. That being said, I took a 20-25 ft fall above the fifth bolt and it was clean and a lot of fun.
