I didn't think much of this. I thought the 10 foot section of arete climbing was really great, but the first 15 feet is choss, the line is contrived, and many of the bolts are off the natural line.

Funny, I thought ridiculously highly of it. But then again, I'm fully tweaked. Cam

I thought this was a fun route. The bottom part is pretty chossy, but so is the bottom of almost every route at the Overlook. The climbing between bolts two and five is cool and sustained but with several good rests. The top is much easier but still fun exposed arete slapping.

However, I do agree that many of the clips are in strange positions and difficult to see. I recall once looking around desperately for the next clip when super pumped, only to find it at waist level on the other side of the arete.
