The bottom 60 feet is great with the last 30 being okay and a little sharp. Climbing through the big tiered roof is really cool and the crux will really test you. I predict most will find it pretty tough to onsight. Well worth doing

Nice Dom & Anders!
13 bolts to mussy hooks. Long slings are recommended near the roof to prevent drag.

Hard to read crux, should be easier with a little chalk on the holds. Actually quite fun when figure it out. Top is definitely a little sharp for my liking. Overall, once you figure out what NOT to grab, not a bad route.
