Excellent rock. First 3 pitches are 160' long. Good newer bolts. The first pitch is excellent 10d face, a little runout but bolts are generally where you need them. Route becomes much more featured after the first pitch. Second pitch has only 4 bolts with no other pro and is mostly 5.5 with a couple 5.9 moves high up, protected by a bolt. 3rd pitch is 5.6 max and no bolts but some gear placements. You can rapel the route from the top of pitch 3 with 2, 50m ropes. Pitch 4 and 5 are max 5.5 with no belay anchors and no bolts but some trad pro placements.

First pitch has the crux move, after that climbing becomes easier. Make sure you bring along some Camp tri-cams (for the solution pockets) and a 2.5 to 3" cam for the third pitch, the runout can be very far and that cam will be your best friend ;-))
