Excellent introduction to mixed trad/bolts on typically good stone and interesting climbing.

The first pitch is heads up climbing (5.7, minimal gear, bad rock) up to the first bolts of the 10a section and the route is well protected afterwards.

The belay for the last pitch is sketchy and could stand re-fitting.

I prefer to finish straight up on on another route (10b pitch) rather than do the last pitch of the route.

3 out of 5 stars Silver Ghost

I was not overwhelmed with this route. Surprised it is as popular as it is. Not near as good as the Wraith. We rapped the route and did get our ropes stuck, but it was easy climbing to fix the situation. I advise walking off to the Bonanza rappel. Pitches 3 and 5 were the best I thought.
