Good, but bring some nuts and cams. Although they might not really be necessary, it's a nice route to practice their use.

3 out of 5 stars Nice route for beginners.

This is a nice route for beginners. It has 9 pitches (5.4 5.5 5.5 5.4 5.6 5.5 5.6 (1 p.a.) 5.5 5.4 roughly converted from French scale).
The protection is good, still you might bring some stoppers and friends to practice their use (also has tunnels).
