Done this route a few times, first time in January when it was nice and cold and sticky, which I recommend, for me the hardest move is close to the top getting past the overlap on the left. Climbed right past the middle bolt once...oops.
My friend Steve Rockwell said he chopped this route once - I'd be interested in its history.

|I agree with Chris that the crux is at the top bulge. Also, despite the promising looking holds to the left of the third bolt, make sure you go right over the first bulge. This is a fairly sustained route.|
