Seconding the route description that identifies the crux as the first few moves. These felt completely out of proportion with the difficulty of the rest of the route. Expect 3-4 moves of solid 5.10 climbing that could even feel 5.11 if not used to granite. The remainder of the route goes at easy 5.9. Mother nature is not always the best route-setter!
