Comments: Leave the 4 in the car.
Peg traverse was NBD, no more spicy than any of the other traversing pitches on the route, and none of them felt dangerous. The crux pitches took great gear. Cool route, even the 'easier' pitches were in-your-face, steep, and sustained.

With 70m rope:
Link first 3 with some simul-climbing.
Link 7 to 9 (bad rope drag, back-clean a ton of gear), 9-11, 11 to beginning of 4th class ledge (just barely! had 2 feet of rope left). Unrope and scramble to top from there.

Comments: climbed the route in november and agree with the above poster. The first pitch has serious runouts and some real climbing in the 'no fall zone,' be sure to be very solid on 5.9 OW / squeeze.

That said, its a desert tower so maybe that is to be expected anyways. I highly recommended the route if you're comfortable with runouts at the grade. And leave most of the rack behind. a few finger to hand cams cover the few gear placements on the route - don't haul a heavy rack through the chimneys!
