I wasn't a big fan of this climb. From the bottom the line looks awesome, an overhanging arete, but as I climbed, it felt really contrived. Some of the bolt placements are awkward, especially the bolt protecting the crux, which is about 4 feet away from the arete - since you are climbing on the arete at that point, you get some really awkward and painful falls. Also, there's a key left hand below the crux that is getting very loose, and will require epoxying soon. On the plus side, you can move around the arete to super easy climbing and slop your way (like I did the first time) up to the chains to avoid leaving draws on the route. Also, I've never seen anyone working any routes on the Adjective, to you have the climbs to yourself.
