Still a good warm up and one of Unaweep's few routes under 5.9. The crux is a little spooky so make sure you're solid at the grade before jumping on.

Top it out, methinks.
Obvious, stairway-like feature in the center of the wall right of Diagonal Crack. Route meets Diagonal Crack at the top so you could TR that with two ropes if so inclined.
