Thin moves for the first 3 bolts followed by some interesting thin edges and laybacks before the route starts to ease considerably. Jan 8, 2007

If you want to keep from decking on this one, make sure to belay from the upper ledge, not the ground. if you fell on the initial slab (which is possible- its pretty insecure), you'd definitely ground out if your belayer is on the ground.

i found this to be a pretty unnerving climb- solid 5.10 climbing above ledges for the first 4 bolts. Definitely be solid at the grade on this one, imho. Jan 5, 2015

On the contrary to the above, this climb felt really easy for the grade. Not terribly thin for the slab down low, and there is one standout crux move a little higher, but the rest of the route is cruiser on big jugs. May 31, 2016

I don't think Mattyups can be trusted with grades! :)
Felt solid for the grade, and one should be careful about the belay on those first moves. I TR'd it but will go back to lead. Maybe stick clip the second bolt to avoid possible ledge out. Super climbing.

Thin and engaging at the bottom. Felt a bit stout to me. Jan 7, 2019
