βeta: I have to agree with Andy - IMHO the above average quality of the headwall is not enough to make up for the poor condition of the middle section. There are routes more worthy of three stars than this.

βeta: After clipping the 2nd (or was it 3rd) bolt, I couldn't find any way straight through. The only reasonable solution seemed to slap out left and climb up a slight groove to the overlap, moving back right in passing this overlap. Certainly good moves but I didn't think it low in the grade - fair 7b but not obvious to on-sight.
