This is a great multi-pitch route that is very safe and very fun. The biggest dangers come from falling rocks from climbers above. The crux of the route is on the first pitch and seems more committing than that hard but definitely goes at pumpy 10+. The remaining 6 pitches are all just as much fun. The traverse pitch (four or five I think) is a blast and also well protected for both climbers. The final pitch should not be missed either.
Bring the helmet and be careful of the climbers below. While climbing on the Mota Wall I regularly saw fist size rocks coming down from several hundred feet up.
Pitches go at: 10+, 10+, 10, 9, 9, 9, 9
Hike to the Mota and go up trail for a couple of minutes and is maybe 8 routes from where the routes start. Look for the large obvious crack with bolts and likely a line of people.
QD's. 12 should be plenty if you go pitch by pitch.

Given that you are traversing across the top of the Mota wall, be careful not to trundle rocks onto the crowds below (and there will be crowds).

first pitch felt like 10c/d, second pitch more 10a/b.
