I couldn't agree with the description more on this one. I can't pinpoint exactly what it was about this route, but it definitely had me sweating a few of the moves. They weren't run out or anything, but they were just tough enough that it always felt kind of committing.
My lead took a while - having to convince myself to make some of the moves. My second cruised up, questioning my concern and affirming the route isn't that hard.
It was good enough that I want to get back on it next time I'm in the area to give a go in better style.

|The moves just after the start constitute the "tangy" part of the climb. They're not hard, just weird. There's a lot there, but how to use it? But the real fun begins once you're established on the slab itself. The slab part is short (just a few moves), but it's classic face climbing. Fun.|
