First pitch was full of awkward sized cracks and big jugs, I tried to follow the crack but I ended up making a few moves on the face. This section reminds me of climbing Snake Dike in Yosemite, except the juggy area covered the entire wall.
Don't fall on this route because there are lots of ledges scattered all throughout the route.
Climbing didn't feel like typical classic Tahquitz 5.9, it seemed easier. Also, it should be pointed out that, although the route is well protected, good/secure placements seemed hard to come by due to lots of shallow, flaring cracks.
climbed crack then straight up to step around and climbed second pitch straight to top through 5.8 face. Not sure of rating but I think face section up to step around was 5.9, height dependant (5.9+ if you are under 5'8"). I followed first pitch and lead second pitch. Climbing partner was Andrew Hawley.
