You get into the crux of the route about 8 feet up the wall and it doesn't let up until you have clipped the 4th bolt(25 ft). The crux requires powerful committing moves on small but mostly positive holds (V6ish). After pulling the roof you find an awkward but decent place to catch a shake. Continue through a few more bolts of good 5.11 climbing (35+ feet). Last 15 ft of the route is a bit disappointing as the route was bolted with the idea of creating a 3 pitch route. So the climbing turns into a 5.9 traverse to the anchors. I recommend back cleaning the traverse after sending, then lowering off a carabiner.
I tried to make the description detailed so anyone can come prepared. So if it sounds a bit intense its really not too bad. The route climbs well and is well worth the effort.
The upper pitches need a lot of cleaning and probably an additional bolt or two. I am unable to dedicate the time into tackling such a large project. I was pleased to have freed the first pitch. If someone takes the time to clean the upper pitches it would make for a great and difficult multi-pitch route.
