Good route with varied climbing throughout the pitches. A little bit of everything... cracks (little bit), dihedrals, slab, edges. Agree that the crux pitch is the standout, with an exciting move for the grade! Made the descent in three raps with two 70m ropes, but recommend shorter rappels (one was a real rope-stretcher).

Be aware that there are now plenty of rappel anchors on this face, we had to assist a party that got a rope stuck trying to rappel directly through hangers, despite a rappel station available a short distance away.

Solid day out with Jackie...had to do this one, supposedly a classic...not 5 stars worth, but interesting enough I suppose. That traverse on pitch 6 is quite funky to say the least, particularly to be involved in the first line up this end of EEOR. The one move into the groove is quite sensational. Folks have bailed vs making this move. Otherwise, the climb can be a little tame. The 50m raps were nice. Cheers.
