This is a pretty cool climb. At first glance it looks quite easy, but it's more technical than it looks. You certainly need to be confident with hand and foot jams. For me the crux was about 3/4 of the way up, the crack flares, there's not much for the feet, and what you hope to be bomber horizontals above are rather rounded. To me, solid 5.8. Protects well. The rap from the top anchor is about 85 feet.

Lots and lots of jams with a few fists every so often and high feet. There are many stances for placing high-reach pro. A BD #4 comes into play lower down, and the wide section higher up will use up a .5 or .75 in a slot if you only have one #4. Descend on rap rings at top next to good-looking manzanita, then run up Mole's Corner just to the right for extra fun. Then walk a little down for Nova Express, and then fifteen feet more for Farewell to Arms. Ah, Snowshed.
