Comments: Awesome route. Might be a good idea to bring extra finger sized pieces. Anyone know what the route is to the climbers left? It follows a nice hand crack that opens up to a short offwidth, it was very fun!

Comments: Is that a figure 8 belay device I see down on the rope?

Comments: A very fun climb. I don't think there is any pg-13 at all. I would also say the pitches are more like this:

p1: 5.9 or 5.10 (depending on how good at slab you are)
p2: 5.8
p3: 5.8 (easy until the offwidth/squeeze at the top)
p4: 5.7/8 (The upper slab is much easier then p1)

Also the run out at the top that people keep mentioning is no big deal. You can literally hike up it.

Comments: Face hold relief makes this an easy 5.8, it would be 5.5 if it were in Yosemite!

Comments: I am getting on this route in a few days. How are the rappels down the route currently? I don't really like the idea of doing a bunch of down climbing after a long day(pitch 8 and some of 7). Can anyone testify to the safety of this option?

Comments: This is a fantastic route! The second roof was the technical crux for me as the moves are not entirely obvious. Bring a few extra finger size pieces.

Comments: If Angels Delight is 5.7 this is definitely 5.8. Very fun movement and secure jams.

Comments: What sizes protect the bottom section of the crack? I am trying to decide if this would be a good first 5.10 lead at the overlook, but if its mostly .75 C4 then I'm not sure. And then 2s and 3s at the top?
