I thought that this route was a really fun climb and not loose at all. Didn't experience any of the negative experiences of the OP. A great climb of Jason's.

Ok, I took the warning out of the description. Just a note that around the time of this comment, I pulled off four or five huge holds and feet. A major hold on the roof pull was loose, and the light colored rock at the top was quite chossy. However, I'm 6' 2" at 195lbs so that could be a contributing factor.

Definitely choss. The endorsement in the guidebook "possibly one of the best 10b's anywhere" is laughable.
