This climb is really quite excellent up top, but the start is somewhat heads up and the 10c crux on the lower section isn't anything all that special. It's a move, it's 10c, but it's not very memorable.
Very high first bolt at the start, probably too high to stick clip, and I had to do a pretty solid 5.10 move off a high right hand gaston to gain the giant flake about 15 feet off the ground, to move to the bolt at 20 feet off the ground. If you're solid at 5.11 it shouldn't be a big deal, but you're definitely in ankle breaker territory there, and the giant flake could be solid, or.. who knows!?
Either way, I'm thinking some key holds have shed off the base of this thing because it doesn't say anything about a hard move to get to the first bolt in the book.
Very worth while but be careful at the start..

|The route is four stars after the Midway anchors. I don't think the first bolt is unreasonable. Exactly where I would have put it. There is a somewhat insecure 5.9 move before the bolt but you wouldn't get hurt badly, just a slap on the wrist of you fell.|
