I thought this route was a little stout for a Tahquitz 5.6, but yes, slightly easier than the tope of P2 of El Whampo (5.7). May have just been the day. P1 starts with 15' bouldery runnout before getting to "safer" ground to runnout the next ~30ft. P1-P2 rock has seen some use and is getting smooth (not polished like Yosemite though). P3 OW was my favorite part of the climb, airy, yet not bad. P4 begins with 25' runnout but is 5.3'ish i'd say.
