Pretty fun. Really dirty. Though the guidebook is way off on the location of this and Crow's Nest, the descriptions here at MP are correct. Aug 19, 2014
If I indeed did climb this route (a little hard to tell from the guide book), then it is not 5.8 anymore. Although fun and challenging, the balancy crux traverse is easily 5.11. Maybe some holds broke off that would have made it much easier. If you only climb 5.8 or 5.9 this will be impossible for you without grabing the draws. As a side note the area is sketchy to the max with detritus from illegals and border patrol flying overhead at least three times per hour. I'm not going back. Nov 7, 2010
