Another great route. I found it to be pumpy but not as technical as the Center Crack. Great hands through the traverse and good feet for most of it. Pulling the roof is the crux, but the unprotected move off the ground is certainly a 5.8 move.

Gear is great but not always obvious. Poor planning can expose the second to a swing in the middle section.
