I climbed this route at least a couple of times in the late 80s while spending alternate weekends in the Needles with a bunch of friends from LA. Agree with the others here, this is a good climb for the rating and it looks great from terra firma.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
