A bit of an eliminate with steady climbing to the break, a harrowing finish and not much in the way of gear. Fortunately escape is an easy option.

The description in all guidebooks doesn't seem to fit the route. I thought it was hard 5b/easy 5c to get to the break and it wasn't reachy. However the moves from the break to the top felt like solid 6a and psyched me out first try - I imagine they'd still be tough even if you're tall. There was nowhere obvious for gear unless you use side runners. Unfortunately it's escapable at the break - and escape I did after messing around for too long rather than just downclimbing! Felt more like E4 6a as a solo. A bit eliminate but really good moves.
