Surprisingly fun, this route appears to climb ledge to ledge, but there is only one honest-to-goodness no-hands rest. The crux is near the top (more enduro than power) and is made easier if you're comfortable with hand jams (there's only one). It might be a bit soft for the grade, but regardless of the rating, it's a heck of a lot of fun, especially down low.


About the middle of the wall, climb the obvious light streak just to the left of the obvious black streak.

8-ish draws not including anchors, coldshuts at the top. Personally, I would bring one long (shoulder length) draw. About halfway up, there's a bolt that loads a biner on a standard length draw directly over an edge. It's not at the crux, but you could easily fall clipping the next bolt, and there's a ledge below.
