Pride (5.4)
These are the middle and upper sections. Using a toprope, few climbers will have any trouble with this route. And, as one can see, there are plenty of trad opportunities for it.

Free soloing, though, I have only made it to the boxed area. There, the wall closes in on the right, prohibiting useful arm movement and forcing one to lean left. The face on the left lacks really good holds, though, and it is a tough stretch, with plenty of serious risk, for an unroped climber to reach the next good holds above. The exposure is great here. I have a wife and two young children, and I decided this route wasn't worth risking my life for, so I downclimbed, which was tricky in itself. Next time, I will free solo with chalk, hoping that helps, or use a rope.
