I posted this route as 5.7 because thats what it is listed as in the guidebook but I wouldn't recommend this route unless you're comfortable on 5.9. This was the first 5.7 I've ever climbed that had a bail beaner hanging off it.

Nice climb, but definitely committing for a 5.7, more like 5.8.

Pretty steep for 5.7, although the holds are big. Most fun 5.7 in the Gorge, by far.
