Really fun route, with awesome exposure. I should have done it long ago. Loads of old pins facilitate a "clip 'n go" style but keep the excitement level high all the same. I led the straight up variation on the crux pitch and didn't find the actual crux moves to be super hard, but the "5.9" traverse after the bolt nearly spit me off. The belay right after this is directly on the corner and is one of the coolest perches in Eldo. The long 5.8/5.9 pitch above is steep, exposed, and really high quality too.
