Positive holds the whole way, good route. Straight forward climbing, gets a bit pumpy towards the top. *NOTE* the nut that was previously stuck just above the ledge is now gone.

3 out of 5 stars Definitely bring your pro!

I did this with only draws, which really does make it a hairy climb. There are five bolts in about 70' of climbing, so you do the math. The crux comes in the corner, pulling up over the lip, which is protected by a nut that is wedged in a crack and aint goin' nowhere. I'm not sure you could even get your own gear in there. After this, the climbing becomes 5.4ish, but you either have to climb over a tree, or take a precarious, unprotected step to the right across onto the face that has the anchors. The lower climbing is pretty fun, clean, and fairly well-protected
