The first pitch is very awkward and not at all well protected. The start of the route is found by a metal disk nailed to a tree. Not as difficult as Commitment, overall, but not as enjoyable either.

Agree with Rodger's comment about awkwardness. While there is pro, it is somewhat less than inspiring. There are also several big, spooky blocks you must pull on near the top of the first pitch. If they came off it would be bad for both the climber and the belayer.

I can see why this route rarely gets done.
