I worked this route with several partners, including Dave Stoner, Dave Mayville and others. The route is quite steep and continuous, on good holds. A bit scary at the top.

Take a knife. As of 11/27/10 somebody had left a poot sling and ring on the 2nd or 3rd bolt, looks like it's been there a while, and might hose your clip.
