First couple pitches are 5.6 to 5.8 cracks, corners and giant features. Safe and well protectable. Next couple pitches feature easy 5.5 to 5.7 slab. Some bolts were added in the summer of 2018 to make this safer. No more R/X rating. Thanks Ney!
Next up, the 5.10b crux comes with stemming and topping out on ‘moose antler jugs’, as Peter writes in his book. A 5.9/10a hand crack to crumbly rock is an option to the right.
Few more pitches of fun moderate climbing will get you up on top of and past the 1st false summit. Then ride the ridge (simul-climb?) for 3-4 more pitches of lots of 3rd/4th class, false summits, incredible exposure, and climbing with pro up to 5.7. Also two rappels. Take extra long tat to back up existing stuff. Be mindful of the huge loose block at the 2nd rap. Pretty spacious ledges can be found throughout. Lots of long 200’+ rope stretching pitches so take that 70!
