This is a great route!

The crux is face climbing on the lower half of the route, and is pretty runout. Some small cams afford protection that may be adequate, but I wouldn't have wanted to find out. I would only recommend this climb for a leader who is solid at the grade.

You can walk-off to climber's left to get back to bases of the lower two tiers, and there is also a walk-off to a rappel to climbers right that works with one rope.
