I think this has to be one of the coolest routes in MW. As such I gave it 3 stars, once you leave mineral wells it's by no means "great" or 3 star worthy, but 3 star worthy for mineral wells. Go far right on the back side of the main canyon, look for the small roof that resides at the top of the wall. Also if you're leading new climbers out here they typically find this route really cool!
