Really fun climb with solid rock and pro! Surprising that this thing doesn't see more ascents.

This was the only route I really liked in the area (and only rock I thought was of any quality), fun and thoughtful movement. Appears that the base of the route has eroded significantly lower, there is a short bit of bouldery movement that I can't say is 5.8. After this it eases significantly. Consider standing in a sling off gear to place a higher piece before you lead this.
