4 out of 5 stars Fun, very well protected

I haven't been on this climb in years. It was a lot of fun. I think this would be a very good climb for a new leader, as the protection is very good.

4 out of 5 stars First trad lead!

It was a great first lead. Obvious protection, close together, right before the 'crux' you can place a good nut and a good cam to go into it with confidence. Bolted at the top for a nice easy rap down. The rock at the top is a bit grainy, I didn't really trust my last two placements but you're pretty much climbing stairs at that point.

4 out of 5 stars Nice and Short

You might spend more time waiting than you do actually climbing this. Pretty easy for a 5.6, but fun to climb. A bigger cam (~#3) would make the crux less tricky to protect.

4 out of 5 stars Awesome first climb of the day

Took pause for a moment as I placed gear to be sure I wasn't using my best jam for the next move, but very well protected, fun and short climb!
