Did this route the same day as Construction Job. I'm pretty sure that this one is burlier. I'm also pretty sure that it's well worth the effort. Good gear before the crux, though I've never felt inclined to stop and place anything once I got into the hard section. Good rest and good gear right after the business. Fun fun fun for four pitches, each one as good as the last. Well, the last one is kind of short.
Fantastic first pitch, though seems at least as or more difficult than Dopey Duck or Construction Job. I even stemmed well I thought...? Maybe I need better hand jamming technique? Even if you don't jam, it's no harder than 5.9. And it protects well with clean falls through the cruxy bits.
I had just got done climbing two 5.9's on Shortoff (Construction Job and Dopey Duck) and I thought this was harder. Maybe easier with better stemming technique rather than trying to layback. Had to hang at crux. UPper pitches are a little blocky and discontinuous.
