I really liked this route - I thought it had great, continuous movement. Because it is reasonably technical climbing with lots of feet, it makes for a nice change of pace from the 'big move between good holds' type of route that seems to be common on a lot of other Rumney routes at the grade (e.g. Dynosoar). The Smith guide refers to resting in the chimney after the first crux, but I'm not sure why you would want to do that, especially considering there is a nice resting jug at the same height. For me, to keep the route more sustained and continuous (and not contrived), it seemed like grabbing a quick shake at the jug and then continuing on made for a nicer climb (and probably closer to 13a.) To each his own I guess...no matter how you climb it, it is a really enjoyable route.
