This one was very exciting to lead. As of march '05, there was no chalk on the route, and dirt in some of the pockets. The rock on this route is truly superb, and it deserves more traffic. If it were climbed frequently, it would clean up to a 3 star route, but for now, it's still a bit of an adventure that may not appeal to the typical sport climber.
Oh yeah, it's got some sharp holds near the start and you might want to stick clip the first bolt.
