4 out of 5 stars Big fall, fun route

Took a big tumble where the crack widens up to bigger than fists. got back on and finished; partner got shut down on the upper thin part of p2.

3 out of 5 stars great climb easy for grade

It's a great short pitch, inline with 5.9 of the area IMO. The last move can also be nicely protected with a small TCU (e.g. #1 C3), No need to haul a #5...

4 out of 5 stars get it while you can

The rap anchors for this "short pitch" are subject to getting chopped now and then, so check for them before you start. Climb begins with some fun, face moves but quickly turns into a pumpy thrutch up a nice wide crack. You can (sort of) protect the last stem move to gain the anchor w/a deeply buried #5 cam. Or just go for it. It's an exciting finish either way.
