This is formally known as the "Off-width of Death" which I eye-balled at 5.11 but upon actually climbing it there's good pro all the way and FUN chimney climbing at the top with a jug top out that goes at 5.9.
Follow the nice crack left of Best Jams to a pod in the Chimney with a no hands rest. Plug bomber gear and thrash to the apex of the roof and plug a #5 C4 to protect the top out.
Crack left of Best Jams.
Finger and hand sized. Save a #5 C4 for the very top. TR is east to set off some trees.
The start of the business.

Bottom of the route is OK but is full of spider webs and nasty looking spiders. I cursed Rhoads the whole way up! Once I got into the chimney the fun really began and that's the Type 2 sort of fun. Classic route. Bring a #5 for sure though.
