Spencer, I realize you're one of Tony's minions, but a better description would be in order here. Your posting of this route is relatively worthless without some more detail. Taking cues from his book apparently.

As a non-minion, let me offer this:
P1 - Two easyish layback sections that take good pro, but don't necessarily need it, with a bolt protected slab section between them. A thoughtful mantel at the 2nd bolt is the highlight of this pitch. Chain anchors (95')
P2 - Up a bit, then a fun step to the left with two choices as to what to grab to make it happen. Don't sling the chock stone at your feet to protect this move as it seems a bit loose. Do look for an inward flaring crack that warrants some thought and a double sling. Sling the bush on your way upwards right, while on lookout for a pin. Straight up and right onto the belay ledge (chain anchors), or head right at the pin for a very fun mantle onto the ledge. (55')
P3 - Head up from the left side of the ledge (or right for some spice) past three(?) bolts. Fun slab moves as you trend left towards to the crack where you find the original belay anchors, though one of the chains seems to have been eaten by varmints... so clip the remainder and go right to the anchors for a neighboring 5.10ish route. (70' or so to secondary anchors)
Fun to lead, easy to follow.
Rap the route. 60m rope is fine.
