I felt the move to the chains on Vantage Point was the trickiest in the area from Whipsaw to this route.

The last move is tricky but is usually complicated by the ropes depending on where your belay is standing. Having them close to the wall really opens it up and makes it much easier.

Some of the rock on the middle section of this climb was scary. At least their is a bolt every 4 feet!

The final few moves up to the anchors is not the most enjoyable.
