Not a bad route for someone to practice learning to trust their feet. Only downside is that it's a bit chossy due to likely not getting much foot traffic. Foot blew making a move as the dish my foot was on crumbled a bit.

I concur. A long, sustained section of quintessential Jtree friction will force you to trust your smears. It's probably only been toproped a few times, but will only get cleaner.
