The exposure is extreme, the climbing is scary, and the rock is not so great, but overall it is an incredibly fun route. We free-soloed this in a party of 6, I wouldn't recommend bringing a rope or rack as the extra gear would more get in the way than help. A helmet is a must.
There are two "crux" sections on this route, a roughly 5.4 chimney with a large chockstone at the top, followed shortly by a 5.2 slab with some old webbing near the top.
The 5.4 Chimney
The 5.2 Slab
Near the summit we turned south towards some cairns that mark the upper portion of the hourglass route, however, I think you can stay on the ridge all of the way to the summit.
