This route involves mostly 5.9 slab climbing punctuated by a boulder problem crux (V3) at the bulge. The engaging crux sequence involves poor handholds with decent feet to make a highstep to better holds. Two stars out of five.
A higher bolt at the crux, instead of it's current position, would make this a fun lead but as it stands you're looking at a possible broken ankle.
