We didn't lead this, so we can't say for sure, but the clips didn't seem any more "tenuous" (D'Antonio) than the other routes in the area. Interesting and fairly sustained climbing. If you go directly up the arete high on the pitch, you can avoid a loose block out left and bump the grade up to solid 5.11, with great pro. Definitely recommended this way.
