|There are some bolts that make it much easier to start about 4 feet left of the original start, much more in keeping with the rest of the route.|

This route is a ton of fun. The start can feel a bit spicy since you'll take a pretty bad tumble if you fail to get to the first bolt. I'm 5'10'', and I was able to comfortably clip the first bolt before working the sequence leading up to the next bolt. This initial section felt like 10a/b given that it was slightly thin, but the rest felt like 5.8/5.9.
The mini-roof at the top can be protected by a #1 C4 before standing up to clip the bolt on the face above the roof.
All-in-all, great variety, and a lot of fun.
