"As good as Blue Velvet but with more sustained moves and a little more distance between bolts. Down low, climb right of the bolts and use the arete/corner when possible. Bring medium cams for the Farley start and a few nuts and a .6" cam for an optional gear placement up high. When finished, traverse into Farley and go to the summit or rappel to the Blue Velvet anchor and toprope that climb or rappel 100 feet to Opus 7." ~ McNamara

4 out of 5 stars Not too bad.

Some interesting moves on small knobs. Not badly runout but I wouldn't want to take the fall while trying to clip. Hard moves are well protected.
