The description is dead on. The bottom begins with fun and strenuous moves to the crux - which gives the route its rating - and immediately turns in to easier slab. A good route for people just starting in 5.10s.

I agree with Laursen's post. The bottom can be hard for new 5.10 climbers, but it's a great learning piece. The crux can be accomplished in two ways with either a high right or left foot. Great for learning to trust the toes.
