We linked this line today with Stiffler´s Mom.
These are just my thoughts on the route:
Fun slab climbing. A little dirty on certain spots. If you climb the natural way of the line (a little to the left) it doesn´t feel like 10+ and you can still clip all the bolts. The bolt line is kind of forced in the middle of the slab. That section might be 10+ but again - why climb it just to make it hard?
Lots of bushes and trees. Better forget about that pitch.
Fun Slab climbing. The crux is pretty tricky. Don´t go too far to the left on that rail! The runout after the last bolt can be avoided by placing a bomber blue/purple offset Metolius cam.
A lot of sand, trees etc.
All in all the first and the third pitch are O.K.
As a one-time-link up with Stiffler´s Mom it was fun though!
