Hiked out to do this route, but passed after checking it out.
The gear looked marginal and the rock was very grainy. The rusted pin didn't inspire much confidence either. Perhaps the gear is better than appears from the ground. We did Kate's Bush to the right instead.
Anyone know if the gear is better than it looks?

|The gear is actually fine. The pin protects the crux moves and beyond (pin looks good up close). Definitely some loose/crumbly rock on occasion. Not a straightforward first pitch in my opinion.|

|great climb, engaging, exciting. racked smallest Ballnutz, single black and blue Aliens, doubles in green Aliens up to red BD #1, plus extra third yellow and red Aliens, to do in one long pitch|
