5 out of 5 stars great route!! Don't tell anyone

First. Its a stunning location & no one around. Beautiful 1.5h hike in on maintained trail (by chainsaw, of note, so why no powerdrills??).
First pitch traverse-couple of chicken heads & then fling left foot out to get the only decent hold, balance on that foot & shift over holding on to nothing. Wouldn't want to be short for that move.
Second pitch- not really a hanging belay. 2 bolts and decent ledge. Maybe this is new.
Third pitch, I went to the end of the diagonally rising off-width(fun) till it ended. To go to the rat infested area- I put in a piece high then step down to chock stone shaped like a short bridge or plank that spans a monster vertical channel/scoup thing, that I wouldn't describe as a crack (gear belay). I'm not confident I belayed from the right place & walking that chockstone was, I'm not gonna lie, scary! Pitch 4 is really fun & combines easily with pitch 5 to the top.
Note there is a second rap station 30' down from the first & with a 60 or 70m rope you can get to ground with 2 raps.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome

Really secure climbing all the way throughout and eats gear like a monster that eats gear that has a few run outs. Feet stick to everything.

5 out of 5 stars Whoa

Super classic climb. Feet will stick to anything. The walk out to the rap anchors is pretty heady.

4 out of 5 stars 9/11 day ascent

simple day of climbing upon the wedge...started on the butter knife and followed the obvious line up the slab...windy on top, but overall a solid afternoon climb, hope to be climbing the SW face next time around.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

Easier than the southwest face. pitches 4 and 5 are easily combined. Two ropes for the rappel gets you all the way to the ground.

Wonderful day in the Humbugs. Nice early morning cool walk with near perfect temps for climbing. Pretty windy at the top!
