Although I had fun, especially at the step across on top, there is some strange stuff on this route. Two bolts are hangerless, one would take a hanger, the other is covered in glue of some sort. Also, there is a very unique threaded hueco with a piece of rope through it for a clip. I enjoyed the sense of humor and craftmanship on that one. The step across seemed harder than 5.7, probably height dependent and Mark is like 6'1" so prob felt easier for him. The route name is appropriate.

2 bolts were left hangerless as the rock is so soft the the bolts would not tighten. Epoxy was added to try to remedy this. The bolts are 6in x 1/2in monsters so with a small nut noosed around them they should be plenty safe. The climbing is not particularly difficult at these points. While I am a bit over 6'2" I have had 5'0" partners successfully negotiated the crux without much difficulty.
