Good climb. Still pretty dirty, not to hard though. You can stick clip three anchors up and save some draws.

This route is awesome for the grade. Wasn't really to dirty when I was on it. The bolt way out right at the bulge was a little confusing and I just ended up skipping it because of rope drag. Great route though!
