Fantastic climb - fun climbing, some interesting moves above the roof, great exposure, and a free rappel back to the water at the base of the route. Take care not to get your rope too wet.

I have mixed feelings about this route, it was a choss fest with great exposure and heinous rope drag. Crux moves are protected piss poorly. The rock is extremely hollow, I wouldn't trust it. I ended up making a new line and going further around the corner up a ramp. I had to dig out a crack to protect it. The moves there felt harder than 5.6 (but most Wichita 5.6's do). Although the rock was dirty, the route was exposed and the rope drag horrid, I think I like the route. Just make sure it's the last climb you do for the day as your rope is going to get wet.

ROPE DRAG! I think I extended every piece any still had terrible rope drag. Crux move (which is near the top(12ft left of the anchors) heading back towards the anchors) is not protected well.

I'm not sure about the rope drag complaints. I'll say this, if you're cool running it out a little bit, it's worth not protecting at the left-most part of the traverse before moving back right so there's a little less drag, and as Brent said, use full shoulder length runners to reduce the drag. just my two cents. more fun than i expected.
