4 out of 5 stars You'll wish it didn't end so soon

We did this on a sunny January day. The air temp at the car was about 32 degrees at noon and 4:30, but it felt more like spring or fall climbing with the sun shining directly on the south face. Pitch 1 is a little tricky to protect but easy 5.8 (I would probably have called it 5.7). Make sure to look to the left for the anchors (and large ledge) when you see the piton. Small cams (#4 or #5 zeros) are helpful. There are bolts after pitch one but you will want to move over to the left on the large ledge and build a new belay anchor for pitch two. For me, the crux of the second pitch was the first move off the ledge. After that, it was well protected and fun 5.8 up to a second set of bolted anchors. The only downer is that the pitch ends too soon. We rapped back down the same way (2 raps with 60m rope).
