A good route to rig if you're toproping. It can be climbed left, right or center... all different.

I think the bottom of this route has had a lot of water erosion or worn down holds, cause if you are starting right next to the awkward chimney (the route picture), the beginning is crazy thin. Very hard moves for me.. at least 10+/11-. If you begin farther left or on the corner of the chimney (right) it might be a bit easier.
