This route is great. The bit to the first anchors is good for beginner climbers and pushing through the steeps above shouldn't be missed either. Both bits stay completely dry in downpours.

My first 11a onsight! Amazing line. Destined to be a classic imo. Looks a lot more intimidating than it climbs. Bring alpines for the three bolts above the first set of anchors to eliminate rope drag. Follow the conveniently placed tick marks to cruise through the jug haul. Make use of stemming stances and the nice lean-in rest before the final push. Perhaps a tad soft for the grade but still an excellent route.

This route is extremely fun. The 5.9 section is great as is the upper section. Definitely worth going over there to do.
