The route is fun, but a little sketchy near the top. My parter took a huge fall after a cam pulled - the rock looks more solid than it apparently is.

Sporty start, heady finish, cool climbing in between, plenty of good gear... But I wouldn't recommend it for breaking into the grade.

Fun route, worth doing if in the area. Take some small gear to protect the last few moves.
