On the first 4 pitches be ready for some runout. Pitch one you are making at least 10b moves 10' above a old 1/4" bolt w/Leper hanger and then the climbing "eases" to 10a for the next 20' to the next old bolt. Pitch 3 is 5.9 and a set of newer Bolts have been added about 40' above the belay (it's been reported that the first ascentionist was frightened when he climbed the second time and added bolts to pitch 3 and 4) Pitch 4 again is very old bolts (however double bolt pro has been added on the pitch) and you are belaying off two old bolts (We reinforced our belay by securing to the two old bolt belay 30 feet left. One can avoid the cruz and first old bolt on pitch 4 by going left into a dihedral. All in all it is a good route on good rock but runout.
