Good route...not sure super duper classic status or anything, but the approach is one of the more pleasant at Red Rock which adds to its value. I led the crux, the 5th pitch 5.10d off width. A bit more techy than the last off width pitch on the north face of Castleton Tower (Moab), but quite a bit easier than the Feast of Snakes off width or most any off width for that matter in Zion Natoinal Park. The 2nd half of the pitch goes much easier than the first half so relax once you get through that initial wide section (I only used one #6). The third and fourth pitches were real good. The first pitch was a fun one as well. The second pitch was just ok. On the first pitch, I placed a bomber .75 up and left, then downclimbed, traversed right and up the flake. At 48, not into busting a bone by some stupid 5.9 slab mis move. So the "scary" start, can actually be protected if you want. Kudos to Robert F and his partner replacing the final old bolts at the stations the same week I climbed it.
