βeta: Nice sustained climbing. Just don't think about the about the top third of the route; climb it, enjoy it and sneak away before it all comes tumbling down.

βeta: New Guidebook topo has the line marked too far across to the left. Route starts on the face rather than in the groove. Be careful at the top - large block does not seem to be attached by much.
