Confident smearing needed for the first half of the route. Plus there is a sharp rock waiting at the bottom of the route for anybody who slips off. Found this to be about the same difficulty as Talk to the Hand and nearly as good.

Some interesting thin moves if you stay away from the corner. Made more exciting by kicking out a critical wire placement while placing foot...
