|Wanted to only give it three stars because some spots were pretty sandy, a foot hold or two started to crumble, there were a few hollow sounding spots, and one or two holds wiggled like they were ready to break. However, it climbs REALLY well, and that last pitch is one of the best I've done so... four stars it is. My opinion is that the crux on the third pitch is only slightly easier than the crux on the second. The books grades are Pitch 1 - 5.11a, Pitch 2 - 5.12a, Pitch 3 - 5.11c, Pitch 4 - 5.11c. MY grades are: Pitch 1 - 5.11a, Pitch 2 - 5.12a, Pitch 3 - 5.11d, Pitch 4 - 5.10c|

|Glad this route made it in here. I thought the third pitch was pretty bad. Super hollow in sections and, in my opinion, a lot harder than pitch two. Of course since I'm pretty sure that pitch changes it's possible a couple of years ago it was harder than it is now. But regardless of grade the crux was sandy and not so fun. It was so bad I tried to scope a weakness up the good rock on the direct line. Even if much harder--and it would be--it would improve the overall climb. The rest is great. Agreed the last pitch was by far the easiest of the route but, again, that may/probably has changed since the first ascent.|

This route must have cleaned up over the years. Pitch three was fine and the sandy section could be avoided. The last pitch has some loose rocks and a foothold broke on me. Other than that this route deserves the 4 star rating due to the hard but solid climbing and the fun, exposed finish.
P1 5.11c watch for a loose rock or two
P2 5.12a solid
P3 5.11c/d sandy section but solid
P4 5.11 a with some kitty litter

|Amazing route from start to finish. Gets afternoon sun in the winter. P1-11A, P2-12A sustained pumpy edges, P3-11C/D hard move over the little roof and then a thin bit before jugs to the anchors, P4-10C hard to avoid the amazing 5.9 jugs on the left of the arete. More or less hanging belay at top of P1, belay ledges at top of P2&3.|

Really good varied styles of climbing on each pitch. Four stars all the way!!
Pitch 1 = 10d vertical edging and jugs.
Pitch 2 = 12a vertical crimping and edging.
Pitch 3 = 11d good jugging goes to a slopey crux.
Pitch 4 = 10a jugs up arrette.
For one awesome long pitch lead pitches 1 and 2 together!

Cheers to Zach for telling me to climb this. I'd agree with his ratings, with a firmer upgrade on pitch 3: 11d.
I took too many photos and had too much to say about this climb and so ended up just doing an entire blog post on it.
