This low-angle face is 5.6 with trad pro for most of the way up. The last 20' has a few thin 5.7/5.8 moves with bolts for protection. The crux is just after the last bolt and requires good footwork. The bolt is still reasonably close at this point.
This is probably a good route to set a TR on for beginners, as it's 5.6 most of the way.
3 bolts up high. Nuts and cams (small ones mainly) for the bottom; but if you can solo 5.6 you need only draws.

I believe that this route was established by some combination of Mark Thomas, Tom Wezwick, Karl Kiser, and Chris Kessler, all of whom worked together on several routes at Diablo and in particular on the Winter Wall.

No, this route was put up by others.
