I love this route!!! It is somewhat like a "schoolroom route" in that it requires a variety of skills. I fell at the third bolt several times 7/07/02. A hefty rope-burn reminds me of how much fun I had. Once the sequence was discovered, it was an easy pull. Careful, one or two moves (and a short runout) await the leader beyond this point... nailed the redpoint 7/09/02 before the rope-burn healed
