I think this is one of the best routes on the rock. The crux to me is just past the first horizontal crack. I protected here with a small HB. The route is well protected by Platte standards. I have never done the second pitch.
Look at the rock. Find the 3 horizontal cracks. 4th class scramble to the ledge. Look for the brand new bolts.
