Yeah, there is a lot of dust at the start and at the ledge on the top, but I thought it was a lot of fun. Good climbing and good pro. It is worth doing.

I'm pretty sure i did not see a speck of dirt on this climb... just a whole lot of sand... everywhere

It was a little sandy, but fun. If you can climb grungy sandy routes it just makes you better when you get on the clean stuff. Nice little roof move at the top. Small to medium gear the whole way.

This route had two challenging points, testing the legs more than the arms. It was a lot of fun and the sand made me wish I was at the beach...and then I hit the top and pretty much was.

Seemed a little harder than 5.4. Delicate moves at the top roof...sandy footholds just add to the excitement!

Very sandy but good protection and fun movement. Overall pretty good rock quality. I do wonder where all the sand comes from since it's under a roof. Does it just need a good sweeping or it a perma-beach?
