|As of 1/3/2012, I recommend bringing a stick clip for the first clip if you aren't solid on 5.9+ climbs. The clip is just high enough that a spot isn't all that helpful and the fall is onto uneven rock.|

May deserve a PG13 rating for the first bolt. We onsight most 5.9 sport and were comfortable with the first clip. Just beware if you sometimes struggle with 5.9 that the first clip will be scary.
Very fun moves getting to and through the roof/overlap (also very beta specific). Face climbing on the aggregate above was fun, with the conglom rocks being more solid than they look.

|Do not fall on the crux; you will land on the ledge. First clip didn't bother me; just the crux! Took a lead fall and sprained my ankle and had to hike out on it-not fun.|

The arete part is really good climbing.
First bolt doesn't seem to be any higher than usual and you have great hands. I would call it 5.7 moves up until right before clipping the 3rd bolt. There it felt little cruxy.
Fun route with good variety of climbing! Really enjoyed it.
And has all new hardware :-)
