4 out of 5 stars .

Solid bouldery moves through the crux then huge move to the ledge. Sustained from there to the top so make sure you take a second to shake out on the ledge before you push for the top. If you know the beta for the top and are sure you will get past it then you don't need to bother with the piton, just be careful as the holds do get smaller and more slopey.
