Maybe three stars...
This fine route just keeps getting better as you go.
Climb through huge huecos to a bolt just left of the 1st bolt on Honey Pot. Follow the thin slabby face above on little knobs. to an anchor.
Pitch 2: Move up and right through some choss to a clean face above. Follow bolts to a cruxy move just below a ledge with an anchor.
Pitch 3: Move right on beautiful red stone and follow the edge with a lot of air below your feet until you hit the arete and go straight following bolts to an anchor. The anchor is just above a huge partially detached flake/block that should be negotiated with care.
5.10b 60' (can easily be combined with pitch 2)
Rap the route in two single rope rappels.
right side of the wall just left of Honey Pot.
draws and a couple long slings.

I'm not sure of the actual length of this route but want to try leading it in one long pitch with a 70m. Think I'll make it?

I linked the 3 pitches with a 70m makes for a great pitch!

The second pitch (link-up of 2 and 3) is one of my favorites in the park. Similar to Revelation, but with some hideous exposure--a key foothold in the crux is right on the edge, where the face cuts away from underneath you. I love it! If it was more convenient, it would be a very popular pitch. I think the consensus rating of 10b seems about right; the first pitch is tough for the 10a it gets in the guidebook, but I don't think it is 10c. First pitch is sustained, insecure knob crawling. Many parties just do the first pitch, and miss out on the great rock above.

Awesome route! Gets sun all morning in the winter. I'd like to try it as one pitch with a 70m. Would be great endurance training.

I back-cleaned several bolts and used slings on a lot of the clips and the rope drag was still bad. This is one I'd definitely recommend breaking into two pitches (at the first anchor).
