3 out of 5 stars good

oute made better if the laybacks off Buzz Junky are avoided via some razorblade crimps and shitty feet, adds value (and maybe a letter grade or 2) to the route. The 3rd clip is sketchy (took a good 15 - 20 foot whipper) and the first bolt is pretty high, although fairly easy to clip if you're tall.

4 out of 5 stars Took a few tries

Contrived, since you can reach over to Buzz Junky, but a good sequence unlocks the crux. Harder if short.
