5 out of 5 stars First lead trad climb

My first real lead trad climb in the mountain. Bringing Dad as a second. Real great experience. The last pitch is a marvel of route finding along the edge between large boulders, the 4th anchor is a breathtaking tiny platform where you can sit with your legs in the void - great climbing, consistent with the rating, just one pitch where you should not go wrong on routefinding or you will miss the bolts in an otherwise unprotectable slab.
The approach is a long - but beautiful - 2 to 3 hours hike.
Awesome climb overall!
