Basically what he said below is right on, great move to the break then a harder looking move above the bulge. Bailed left. This needs a re-write. Oh and its also eliminate, form an orderly queue.....

The description in all guidebooks doesn't seem to fit the route. I thought it was hard 5b/easy 5c to get to the break and it wasn't reachy. However the moves from the break to the top felt like solid 6a and psyched me out first try - I imagine they'd still be tough even if you're tall. There was nowhere obvious for gear unless you use side runners. Unfortunately it's escapable at the break - and escape I did after messing around for too long rather than just downclimbing! Felt more like E4 6a as a solo. A bit eliminate but really good moves.
