This is a solo. Traversing into the start holds and it makes it more challenging than 5.10a and it's a good challenge low to the water. Begin the face climb at two cracks. Climb up into the left crack and then move left into the face. Climb straight up, through the cruxy crimpy section halfway up. Grab onto the left facing basalt flake and then delicately stem the granite chunk on the left of the climb, which has a tendency to sound hollow. This second leg is more easy, so it makes for a decent climb up to the top. I think the left facing flake is the best, and worst hold. The basalt flake's likely to break and at the same time is best for setting up for your movement before climbing into smaller ledges.
This climb I would classify as a little dangerous, since the fall from up high would be painful, it also was a cliff jumping rock before I ever climbed, recommended by my neighbor in Chelan. Marshall's Strain starts up from the double crack but climbs left into a beautiful face! There is a chunk on the middle face I avoid, because my feeble foot placements on it were sketch.
