Consider splitting p1 into 2 pitches to reduce drag.
You can rap down from the pretty good first pitch from the anchor for the climb to its left on the midway sloping ledge with 1 60m rope and some easy downclimbing.
The FA of the so-so upper half (p2) and FFA of p1 was Steve DiMarino and myself.

Good route. New anchor at belay ledge shared by this and Perk-Up. Two raps required to get down, or single 70m gets you to within 10 feet of ground with some scrambling. Recommend 2 raps.

Standard rack to #4 is good beta, but make sure its a new #4 or old #3.5, the old purple #4 is a bit too big to protect the roof move. Also, at the start of the climb from the slab anchor, I went right for a few moves before moving left, the rock was better (even considering the scary looking chockstone, which felt solid).
