Great climb, blue-red Mastercams are nice and a #1 C4 for the finishing moves.

Great little pitch! However, it's not in the current Arkansas Valley guidebook.

This is a 5.8+ or 5.9- route. We found it to be sandbagged because of the crux moves needed. Leading, my boyfriend had difficulty placing gear at the top, and he's a solid 5.10 climber. Beginners would not like the top of this route, and it would be wise to change the rating for other climbers. It took us a LONG time, because I had a lot of difficulty with the crux. I am a solid 5.8 climber, so felt the 5.8+ or 5.9- was an appropriate rating due to the crux. The first 2/3 of the climb is 5.7 but not the top. Great moves in the beginning and solid crag otherwise. 5.7 to the right was more true to rating.
