|Nice addition Wayne. One might think that after leading or TR'ing this line that it could warrant a 10-, however, after doing many of the other lines in this area including Air Mail, it probably should only be a 9+. Plenty of gear until the final moves. Be prepared to sling the flake about 3/4 of the way up. Gets sun first thing so a good warmup on cold days. Two stars. Fun, vertical climbing.|

^^^ Airmail has always been a sandbag. I think this deserves 5.10.
This is true, at least, if following the arete the whole way and always within an arm's reach of it or holding it.
Best way to do it is probably as a single pitch from the ground on Coniferous Types and continuing... always right of the arete, always within reach.
