It is very good and hard climb. Reid book did not give it any stars, but it should. Started with unique body position - almost horizontal - to transition from tight flare to body size chimney. Than fist size roof - the crux. How hard- depends from your fist size.
And than thin crack to the anchors.
Can be well protected with single rack from small cam to #6

Would be worth 3 stars if the route & base weren't so dirty. Very physical route, which can either be mostly liebacked or also incorporate some OW technique (e.g. I cammed my right leg in to assist with the lower liebacking after turning the first roof).

Unless perhaps you can start the route as squeeze chimney, you have to climb a ways on pretty burly terrain before you could even get a #6 4CU in, though a crash pad might be helpful for the start.
