The write-up lists it as a 4 pitch climb, but I don't think anyone would need to rope up for the walk to the top after p3. We did it in two pitches, linking p1 and p2 with a 70 m rope. We had enough extra that I think a 60 would make it as well.
p1: 30 m - easy, slabby start with relatively good rock.
p2: 30 m - slightly more difficult than p1. Fun, easy crack climbing. Rock quality a bit worse than p1.
p3: 20m - listed as the crux pitch, but I didn't find it more difficult than p2 other than the rock quality. I had to be careful when leading this pitch as there was a good deal of rotten rock. This may change as it gets climbed more.
I think the real value of this route is the low investment. You can easily knock out a fun multipitch on Tunnel with only an hour or two. It's fun, low stress, well bolted and has great views at the top.
I will also note the FA gave this a rating of 5.7. I think this is a softer grade than the other routes nearby.
