Steep bouldery climbing for the first 4 bolts. You start with the first stick clipped and do a difficult series of moves on pockets up a good belly of stone. Harder bouldering than the route to its right or left. Go to the big ledge and get a no hands. Many people stop here and lower off a quick link on the 4th bolt. There is a desperate move on the slab/vert face above. This is on on pretty small holds as you leave the no hands (probably around 12b), so don't think you've redpointed this one until you clip the anchors.

I thought this route was really good and deserving of more than the one star in the guide book. Worth doing for sure if you climbed the rest of the classics.
