Scott Baxter and I did the first ascent of this route back in 1977 or 1978.

Just did this route today and thought it was great! One note however is that on the easy slabs above the anchor there is a 500+lbs block resting on a teeter totter. We debated trundling it, but since my dog was hanging out at the bottom decided that would be a bad idea. Plus didn't know how far down the hill it would roll. Instead we reinforced it with a bunch of rocks to hopefully stabilize it for future parties. I would advise future parties to climb around it to the right... Super fun approach and climb though!
