I hate to nitpick but could you please provide more information on this route? This route, being long and committing, really should have more information posted. What are the pitch descriptions (esp. first pitch)? What are the anchors like? I realize there are no fixed anchors but can you provide any more info? What's the gear like?

P1 will keep all but the most determined off the route. There is a 40' runout at the start on sustained and delicate 5.8+ climbing, with not much gear for the rest of the pitch. P2 is really just a belay shift to the base of the obvious crack. P3 has excellent gear, and sustained climbing in the 5.9-10b range. It keeps getting harder and harder as you go higher, with the culmination being surmounting the overhang at the end of the pitch...very exciting! P4 is mellower climbing, on somewhat eggshell sounding rock.
