|The meat of this route is excellent, albeit really short. Unfortunately it is fairly high up, above a pile of nasty flakes. Between the natural sag in the rope (due to the big ledges), the height, and the ankle-breaking flakes, you will probably want a close belay.|

I'd give 1.5 stars, not as quite as good as New Ethics to the right.
I felt pretty comfortable w/o a stick clip on this one, getting to bolts 1 & 2 felt easy/secure. Like Slim says, you'll want an attentive belayer off the ledge as it's game on as soon as you step off, and the hard part of this climb is pretty good but short.
