Sent this guy today. I got the impression from several Pass locals that it was "open", so I hope my send doesn't offend anyone. Thanks to Wade for the vision, hardware, and hard work equipping the line.
If you like technical arete climbing, this is a must-do for the Pass. The climb is a classic power-endurance test, with barely a chance to clip between the ground and the high roof (in fact the third clip is one of the hardest "moves" on the route). The crux is a particularly desperate pinching section getting to the 3rd bolt, but there are plenty of hard moves to keep you interested.
The rock was a bit flaky/dirty when I first got on it, but it's cleaned up really well. The movement is excellent, and if not for the bivy-sized ledge 3/4-way up, it might be worthy of 4 stars. FWIW I've been calling it "Captain America".
