I thought over the counter might be harder. Not a bad route.

3 out of 5 stars Almost

First lead climb at Pictured Rocks, didn't quite get. Just got stuck at the crux.

Giving it a PG 13 merely for the belay, no good spot on the hill, and one of the step on the hill is now missing leaving a rod exposed out of the ground.

3 out of 5 stars Ascent Notes

This was challenging the entire time, but not necessarily fun the whole way up. It's a long run out to the first bolt, and a long route on the whole, which makes it good for endurance, but not necessarily an enjoyable route. Worth doing if practicing for endurance, but worth passing if you're only looking for great routes.

This climb has 5 bolts to rap hangers. It is about 60 feet tall. If this was quality overhanging rock that would not be a problem. It is low angle, so if you fall there are plenty of chances to deck on a ledge, and its chossy- I only had two handholds crack on this ascent. Finally its covered with plantlife since it rarely gets climbed. Skip it and have fun somewhere else.
Except for a couple 10a moves this is an 8.
