Staring up the dark, rough face of the wall is intimidating as the holds seem insufficient, but in fact much of the climbing is done on the arete, which hides surprisingly good holds at each horizontal crack.
Unlike the rest of golden valley the rock on this prow and the dark face especially is incredibly rough conglomerate with hundreds of pebble and microfeatures. Feet are good - amazingly so, and even when the rock looks blank, you can often step on "nothing" and have it stick.
The consensus grade is 11d, but with long reaches between good holds, the difficulty of this climb can vary quite a bit depending on height.
