Hi! I'm sorry if there is a similiar post somewhere on here relating to this topic, but I am a new trad climber looking for some advice on easy leads with passive pro at rumbling bald. I can comfortable lead 5.11-12a on sport and currently only have nuts and hexes. Are there any climbs that stick out to anyone that could be led on only passive pro? Easy 5.5 climbs welcomed, i'm really just trying to get the hang of placing gear and getting an eye for it.
Thanks in advance.

I have only worked on one route at RB, but it seems that tri-cams are the best gear there. For passive pro I would recommend Table Rock or Snakes Den. Both are long hikes in winter, but great 3-season climbing areas.

To learn trad, I recommend 2-pitch on the south face of Table Rock. It is bolted, but has great trad placement as well.
