5 out of 5 stars great but frightening route

The guidebook understates the runout on this climb: "Slightly difficult to protect" is putting it mildly. You might be able to get an offset alien in the pin scar before the crux, but that means you don't get to use it as a hold...In relation to other Idyllwild 5.11s, this is a definite notch up from Valhalla, Etude, or Fred at Tahquitz.
