The route,from the start up until after the roof, is a strong 2 stars, super fun. The climbing becomes indistinct, chossy, dirty, and (at least the way I went) runout on kitty litter. The roof is super fun, protects really well. The climbing above it stays interesting for another 20 ft or so, but if you continue to the top of the formation, like I did, you're in for some less-than-classic ground.
To get down (assuming you go all the way up - and there isn't a bolted anchor for the route) scramble climber's right down an easy, low angle corner, then turn right (facing Storm Mountain) around a corner and you're at the anchor for The Bee Pitch. One 60m rap gets you down from there.

Wow, so I wasn't the only fool to climb to the rim?
Kitty litter would be a kind description to the sizable rocks I was knocking down on my ascent. They really ought to put warning signs so some kid doesn't get her head caved in.
