Pretty good route. More of a .10c than an .11a though. This route is way easier than Quest For Glory, .10d in Supertopo or .11a in Falcon Guide. The first 40 feet is more steep than hard, with slammer hands and good pro. The bolted section is slabby but interesting. Find the hold in the crack shaped like a suitcase handle.

Directly compared with Quest for Glory, this climb hits the 5.10d mark in my rubric. This one was a very similar effort for me, and I got both clean on lead. This one was actually a more tenuous send.

Very cool thin hands start, to a hands pod, to indescribable crack funkiness that saw me latching funky finger jams while wide pinching large flakes in the crack while yelling like a spastic. Good times!

The face climbing above was also enjoyable. I need to get back and try Trust is a Must.
