I loved this route and will definitely do it again. It's a great adventure and it gets you waaay up there. Despite a fair amount of choss, almost all the climbing is really fun, and the route consistently gets steeper and more spectacular the higher you go. It feels like climbing a mountain rather than simply a big cliff. We both thought the offwidth move by the tube chock was the route crux--I barely eeked through on TR. It has great pro though (but the route as a whole is pretty serious). Took us just under 9 hours to do the climb, with about 1.5 for the approach and a little over an hour for the hike back to camp. This would be a good climb to do if you've done the Scenic Cruise and want to do another grade V 5.10 in the Black, just don't come expecting the same high quality rock.
