this is pretty go-ey for an hvs ! i did flux of dreams on same day and that traverse was way easier ! Its crux is short but don't do it after rain (as did i) coz the pockets on the traverse will be little muddy puddles- IE:just where you dont need them ! The bottom bit is good too ! but avoid the top pitch and walk off right from the belay. For what its worth, i'd give it 2 or 3 stars !

Traverse is tricky:steep with sloping handholds and no footholds. Felt more like E1 5B
