Excellent route, deserves more traffic. We had the whole dome to ourselves on a beautiful Saturday at the end of July last summer.

The approach pitches are further right than you might think from the topo -- we missed this and came in from the left on nervy, though not terribly hard, friction.

The corner pitch is fairly sustained at the grade. The "R" rating seems over-cautious, though; I got bomber brown and red Tri-cams in pockets low in the corner, right where the topo says "no pro."
