It's fairly straight forward at first, but about 2/3 of the way up the face turns in to nothing but tiny crimps. It's really heady for the grade. My only advice? Don't go left in lieu of the crimpy face. All the holds are there, you've just gotta power through. It was my first non-toprope climb and it was a little more than I bargained for, but definitely worth it.

If you are a beginner leader, give this one a shot. A well protected, fun climb, with such a view!

Really fun for the grade. If you're super short, I can see the slabby parts being tricky, but all the holds and feet are there, and it's a 5.6, you're not going to fall. Bring an extra .75 cam for your anchor, and about 15 ft of slings/cordellete if you plan on a tree anchor. I cleaned it off, as of 4/9/2016.

Call me crazy, but I thought the crux (slab) move was harder than the opening of Borrowed Time.

Other key information missing from the route description (I only see it as a comment on the wall itself, and could do with being repeated on each route) -- descent is via easy walk-off from the top. It was a bit overgrown but the trail is there.
