This might be the coolest 5.11 edge climbing I've ever done. Wear your edging shoes. Check that - wear your comfortable edging shoes because you'll be on your feet for most of this. The climbing in the corner is crazy fun. Link it all in one long one pitch for the full effect.

Oh, and I thought Kent said it was .11c? But if you're a 90's hardman, there is little difference between .10+ and .11+.
