We did the route in four 100 ft pitches to minimize rope drag. I thought the first pitch (around the chockstone) was harder than 5.5, maybe 5.7. We did it after a rainstorm so perhaps it was the wet lichen that made it feel so insecure. I would rate the pitches 5.7, 4th, 5.5, and 4th. The most fun was the last one if you go left up the arete. It is a very cool setting for a climb.
