Fun route once you get past the first striation resembling corn flakes. Clip-sticking the first bolt seems like a smart idea until the area gets more use. Lots of options for making the climb more or less difficult than it should be. Good variety of movement with opportunities for a wide variety of techniques not typically available in a 5.8 climb. Plenty of loose rock; best for your belayer to stand clear.

More corn flakes than your mothers breaded-chicken recipe calls for. bring a broom and dustpan. good warm up route, lots of rope drag, good practice for exercising caution
