Not sure this climb is the best beginner lead spot in the world...at the start, placed "protection" in an incredibly fractured, hollow-sounding face (but what do I know, I'm just a beginner). Noticed the 'gunks seems to be a good spot for tri-cams. For one placement, I would've used a tri-cam except there wasn't one on my [loaner] rack. I attempted to make do with a nut, and then endured a lecture afterwards re: my lousy placement. Clearly I'm no McGuyver. Had to hang out for a while halfway up P1 for a party of climbers to rappel over top of me. Protecting the traverse before the first belay was worthwhile practice. It was so late in the afternoon I called it quits at that stage and rapp'ed off of the station above Fingerlocks.
Working with Bett as she "ticks" off all of the 2's, 3's as a new leader. She did a fine job, but, went to a really manky tree/anchor system in the weeds at the top of the climb. We would have been better off heading to Madame G's!
