Exposure right off the belay to technical, sustained climbing with what I thought were four distinct cruxes in all. What's not to like? Despite the choss factor, the adventure factor along with quality climbing movement place this route as well worth a little effort to get on.

The cruxes aren't of the French Free variety, you will have to suck it up and climb. My thoughts on the difficulty of this climb is that it is well sandbagged at 5.11a. Perhaps repeated viewings yield the easier grade, as the cruxes were fairly beta intensive. At the least, this does not appear to be an onsight friendly route.

Winter storms covered first pitch with mud. Still possible to rap from top to do this fine pitch, but bring 2 3/8" bolt hangars to rap.
