The rating of this route is not indicative of the difficulties. When the climbing tips into the 5.10 range it is protected with a bolt but the true challenges of this climb are keeping it together on 5.8 wandering slab way out over a bolt.

Comments: Definitely one of the best routes on the east coast!!! Well protected and super steep make this rig a truly unique experience.

A few thoughts on the route:

The mantle on pitch 1 is probably no harder than 11+. Have no fear. Have some mid size pieces to protect the run outs above the mantle.

The 2nd pitch "11d" is awesome and no move is harder than 11a/b, just a lot of 10+/11- climbing.

Bring only quickdraws on the 5.8 pitch. If you are scared of falling on this back off now.

Comments: From the location of the bolt (which is too far right causing rope drag issues) I believe that the FA was done by climbing the initial corner to about 10 feet and instead of following the crack up and left (which seems like the most logical way to me and best protected way as well), he stepped right and moved up the delicate slab until he was able to drill the bolt (or perhaps he pre-placed the bolt on rappel).

Comments: This route is excellent and probably the best warm up for the steep cave routes to the left. Bottom 10 feet is pretty rotten rock.

Comments: For me the crux is the mini offwidth roof 2/3 of the way up. I'm curious: Did you use squeeze and jam through it or use the sport weenie method and crimp and pimp through it. Being a East Coast, sport weenie I had to do the latter-no way was I figuring out the squeeze and jamming beta on that one.
