Easy fun climbing. The sand stone is a little chossy at points and the bolts are spaced (15ft) more trad so it probably was bolted on lead. If you some how managed to take a fall to either side of the ridge you'd take a not so fun and scrapey pendulum swing. Had only a few feet left of my 60 when I rapped back and cleaned the route so be sure to rap off your center point and to not use anything less than a 60.
Be sure to top out after the route. Awesome exposure!
5.2 pg (if you can even give it that low of a danger rating)

|One option for descent is to rappel into the notch to the southwest (to the right if looking down the route from the anchor) toward the summit of the Temple of Ishtar. This only requires a 60 ft rappel and an easy scramble down the broad gulley to the base of "Rainy Day Woman" (the gulley is west of the start of "Rainy Day Woman").|
