4 out of 5 stars Beginner Lead

Got stuck and was unsure where to go at the third bolt. Ended up going right and skipping the fourth bolt entirely (a bit scary). After watching my gf do it to the left, I tried that and it worked much better. Much more fun and confident on top rope. Felt like a 5.9 but only cuz i got freaked out leading it.

4 out of 5 stars Fun route

Great lead. Definitely recommend cam for physical and psychological protection. Potential ground fall without cam (although the climbing is easy). Clear alien worked great, probably red camalot would be perfect. Fun start, easy middle section, and tricky top section. It gets slick up there. I'd say 5.8+ because of the last couple moves.

4 out of 5 stars Nameless Left?

This was a great climb, but it seriously needs a real name. Good climb, I liked it.

3 out of 5 stars Nameless left of Dimrill Stair

I think this one needs a real name, it's definitely fun enough for one. Beginning and end are a bit reachy, but nothing too bad. The crack in the middle is very fun and nice and easy. Really no need for any cams, I just skipped it to the 3rd bolt.
