We only did P1 and 2, trying to linkup with the last 2 pitches of The Matrix (which failed, P3 of The Matrix is rated 5.6 but our leader couldn't commit and traversed back to us... he said it looked harder than the 5.7 we just climbed).
When I came here to add my tick I was very surprised this route had not been entered. P1 is good friction but nothing special, P2 was a great mix of friction and some really unique moves using seams and the crack. A couple moves had me stemming, ON SLAB! lol Of the two pitches we climbed, pitch 2 was voted by all 4 in our party as the better. We liked Little Finger a lot, but move for move Pitch 2 on Screaming Meaney was easily the best climbing of the day.
