3 out of 5 stars Climbed the route and thought the rock quality was fine.

The rock was a little loose in places, maybe a bit grainy in others due to low traffic. But all in all is a fine substitute to the bolt ladder sinocranium. The routes more to the north on the west face have better rock with great gear belays. The west face of steinfells would be awesome if it ever got the traffic.
