I thought this route was worth the two stars it has in Bass's guide. We did the whole thing--I believe we were the first since 06. Above the Crux pitch there is a stopper. Runout hard 11 out of a cave, where the belayer must remain very attentive to keep the leader off a ledge. The crux pitch below is very thin and criptic--I fell once. Above this stopper pitch is sharp rock, not of the quality of the first 7 pitches. Oh Yeah, the first pitch is sequential, hard for 11 B, and slightly runout--a keep out the riff raff pitch. You will not encounter a line for this one. Thanks Hank--I've heard your a crazy #$# Almost forgot, Rappel the route if you do all 9 pitches--this is a bummer.
