|Although the fun crux moves are short-lived, this is a worthwhile climb. As Chris mentioned, it is one of very few easy climbs at the cliff. A fun alternative if you don't have the balls to hop on Gamesmanship or Fastest Gun, which is why I climbed it.|

I just boldly gave this a 5.5. I've been climbing a LOT of the easy climbs in the Dacks for the last 2 seasons and I can't possibly say that this is on the same level as, for example, CWI. It is much easier. Another comparison; I would put the the third pitch of Catharsis (5.5) at about as hard (if not harder).
The traverse (which is the crux), is by no means difficult; but it's friggin fun! I would have taken 50 feet more of that!
The first bolt is placed perfectly. Exactly where you'd want it.
