|First chockstone made me nervous (really plans on staying there?). Did come across giant loose boulder at top. Rating 5.3 because of nice rest stops, but move through slot above cave really tough. First tried stemming on left side, but had better luck going right up the inside face on the right. Had to haul up my pack and rack from the cave (could not fit thru slot). Great views into the amphitheater and on top of East Bench. Downclimbed back to eyebolt and rapped (left backup sling).|

Not recommended for new leaders. This route is certainly in the NO FALL category. The gear was mostly slung chockstones, and the crux is only protected by a small nut.
That being said, this was a hell of an adventure, and I would highly recommend it for those seeking some spice.
