Slightly harder than the route to its left. There is an awkward clip right in the middle, but plenty of holds to touch trying to find the best ones. The best holds want you to move left and eventually you will get real close to the adjoining route. No worries, just move back right on big holds when you can. Anchor on top.

Agreed, slightly harder than neighboring route with a pseudo bouldery start and then some either funky reach or something around the 2nd bolt. You're bringing your feet up to a huge flake but if you blew it, it might be ugly. I thought perhaps I had just come into it wrong but then [Russ] lead it and did some fancy foot work too.

Good route, huge holds requires maybe a little finesse. You can also basically reach the anchor to the left too so easy to do both routes with lowering from draws then reaching over when you're all done to strip & clean up the summit before rappelling down (and/or walking off back to climber's right)
