This route is OK for the grade, but not nearly as good as several surrounding routes. There are several fairly large loose blocks that are wedged on this climb that would be very detrimental to the belayer if they get yarded out. With that being said, it's worth doing if you're there.
Share's the start of The Energy Blues and verges right towards the arete on the slab section. The crux is up high and is pulling onto the arete to get up to final bolt and anchors.

Sloping steps up to a big ledge then a couple of finger jam moves and a mantle onto another sandy ledge. From there your home free to a two bolt anchor. Really fun for a new leader. If it was another 60 ft taller, it would really be something. One of the loose blocks below the mantel has ben removed.

The final mantel over after the crack has a lot of dirt. The ridge is positive but the mantle over can be sketchy because of this.
