4 out of 5 stars Trust your feet.

Nice and thin little face climb. Slightly less than vertical, it is not the type of climb you are going to muscle your way up. Great route for working on your footwork, and getting used to trusting not great foot holds. Crux is near the bottom as you move from the lower slabby section up onto the steeper slabby section. Little crimps, a high step and balance will get you through. Lots of fun, and it feels great when you're finished. Gets easier the higher you go, which is great for us out of shape climbers. A little harder than the 5.7 grade given, more like 5.8 with a 5.9 crux near the start. But hey, it's the Mills, if you can climb it here, you can climb it anywhere.
