Just climbed this today and wanted to mention that it is possible to rap this line with one 70m rope.
Also: above the first pitch we went slightly right and up to a bolt (that is not marked on the topo) before continuing up the crack instead of left to the wide crack. This variation was easy and created less rope drag.
Finally, the start of the Feather pitch is thin before clipping the bolt and reaching the locks. I recommend that the belayer lower their stance a ways to give the leader room to climb (and/or fall).
Final, 10d pitch felt tough, but that might just be my lack of slab skills. Really cool, fun route!
