Great route in good condition. I climbed the 1st and 3rd pitches. The first is easy grade IV. The second is straight forward initially going up the corner but very tenuous on the traverse left to right. Good gear straight up but none on the traverse which is very short but a fall at the left side would mean a painful swing into the corner. Easy ground from the top of this traverse to the belay. Pitch 3 was tenuous up to the first overhang which was strenuous and committing. Good gear and hooks though. The traverse right to the next overhang was awkward and the move to the left of the overhang was again committing. Good gear though but nothing for the feet. Easy ground to the belay. Pitch 4 looks easy from below but was very technical with poor pick placements. Reasonable gear once established though. Fantastic route and worthy of 3 stars. Grade wise certainly VI 7 and maybe soft VII 7.
