|The first couple of moves off the starting chicken-head are the crux (although well protected by the first bolt). It eases up shortly after passing the first bolt, but remains engaging until the third bolt, where it rolls into 5.6/5.7. Personally, I think the crux moves are actually a little harder than Cheetah (also rated 5.11a).|

The sequence through the crux has some really interesting movement with some serious friction. The route eases up considerably after the 2nd bolt and makes for a nice cruiser.
The bolts are fairly spaced and the upper runout is really hard to justify on a route that was obviously not bolted on lead. Doesn't matter if it's easy, there are no extra style points for artificially creating a R-rated route on rappel.
