love this route, I climb it whenever I can. Juggy, stemmy, then slabby.

4 out of 5 stars Tough

This is really tough for a 5.9 -- or as someone said, "old school 5.8". And, yeah, "old school 5.8" would be about the rating I'd give -- otherwise known as 5.10. :)

The rock is slick/greasy in places in the lower part, where there's a lot of swing to worry about if you come off.

And, the route just keeps on working you... there's little in the way of rests, making it very pumpy and a lot of work.

Still, an awesome route and I'm glad I climbed it.
