This is an awesome route- the steep, bolted crux comes about half-way thru the 2nd pitch- a long throw off a sloper to a good pocket. A psychological crux comes at the top near the top of the cliff- a very thin corner that takes brass and maybe some off-set micro cams, then fun bolted face climbing to the top.
