A few sections on this route might keep NPR's Will Shorts scratching his head. The climb goes on and on and has a middle and a finish that might thwart your onsight. Pretty much what you get on most Rough Rider Wall routes, stemming, laybacking, underclings, thin balancy face climbing and it is long. It crosses Crescendo at the easiest point, about 30 feet up using one bolt then moving up and right. If you clip two bolts on Crescendo you might not be happy with the rope drag. Work left at the top to use the anchors on Crescendo. Oh, and don't even think about clipping the last bolt on Crescendo.
