Pretty easy after the couple low cruxes, just keep putting your toes straight into the crack and head for the top. There are only 4 bolts on this whole route which makes it much more scary than difficult. If you blow the first or second clips your fall will be rather unpleasant and might involve the ground. The climbing between the second and fourth bolts is the safest, but there is probably about 40'-50' between the fourth bolt and the anchor, it gets quite runout. Fortunately that section of the climb is by far the easiest, you barely need your hands at all by that point.
