How does the first pitch of the mummy compare in difficulty to the north ridge?

Mummy is a bit more straightforward. It has one hard move where the route goes vertical requiring getting your feet high with a finger crack for your hands. Passive gear through the fingercrack crux of the Mummy is very obvious. Both routes have surprisingly steep sections for their grades.

I see you've done peek-a-boo. That step across move is probably legit 5.7, for what it's worth, and harder than anything on Mummy.
