Wow, what a great route. 1000' of Squamish granite bliss. Well protected, sustained moderate 5.10 climbing with a few short, harder cruxes. Hats off to the diggers and scrubbers. The final traverse, belay, and chimney are awesome. Cool exposure.

I'll second the "bring more gear". Double rack of small cams to #3 + nuts + #4 seemed perfect to me. I'm a wuss and shuffled the #4 up between the bolts on the 5.10a hand/fist crack.

And the scary flake is still there on P5.
