Comments: This is an excellent adventure and can be a mostly enjoyable time if a few things are considered.
First off, the route has enough dirt and tall grass in many of the cracks to make you feel like you just did a heavy day of gardening and acquired the diet of a cow. I found some of what should have been the more straight forward pitches to be absolutely terrifying as I could not see holds or gear and had to deal with blades of grass going places no one would ever want.

Comments: The first 3 pitches are fantastic and loaded with difficult and committing climbing. The 2nd pitch in particular had some well spaced and questionable protection with plenty of climbing at the grade. Make sure your Stronghold trickery is solid.
Comments: Pitch 2 is a RIGHT facing corner and is an absolutely fantastic pitch. I climbed to the end of the rope and belayed behind a ~7 foot tall block on a ledge. The 3rd pitch had nothing resembling "tunneling through a fun chimney" and was more like climbing over loose blocks to fun moves right around a roof. This is a great route.
Comments: Amazing climb! There is a bolted belay on first pitch now. 60 meter rope makes it to every bolted belay so no need to build anchors or bring a 70 unless desired. Did 3 pitches, the part to summit after the 3rd is nothing. Relaxed climbing with an awesome move over the dihedral (5.7ish)... I loved it!
