Climbed this on 5/27. An enjoyable climb that will clean up nicely with a little time and traffic. Either I didn't see a couple key holds through the slabby section about 2/3 of the way up or this is one of the most challenging 5.8s I've climbed.
Edit: I climbed this again on 9/18 and, either because the route is now cleaner or because I was paying more attention or both, route finding through the slabby section was much easier.

There is a headwall at the 6th or 7th bolt that requires some thin moves. The crux comes right at the bolt with very little with which to make the clip. This 5 or 6 feet of climbing puts the grade at 5.9+. Pretty tough for a 5.8 leader.

The slabby section everyone speaks of was the crux in my opinion - was a tough lead for me. Also, Holiday Road is very close to you on the right and it's easy to be lured just off route to the right (you can see chalk there, etc.), but that is part of Holiday Road. Stay on the slab as there is at least 1 nice left hand crimper to use. Route is in good shape as of yesterday.

In October 2013, Dale Haas and I replaced the hardware at the anchor with SS quicklinks and SS rings. The hardware was provided by the American Safe Climbing Association(ASCA)(www.safeclimbing.org). They appreciate your support.

Impressive crux for 5.8. Definitely felt 5.9 to 9+ even in Clear Creek.
