2 out of 5 stars Good novice lead

Disappointing at 5.8 - felt maybe even 5.6. Cleaned away 30lbs of rock "hold" begging to be held and stepped on, but in between the remaining looseness is some decent rock. A safe bet for a novice leader new to trad with 2" cam and medium nuts, but the sections where bolts were spaced were very easy so I never bothered. A good addition to Raven's End to accommodate a range of leading abilities. A straight up finish to the anchor might be a legitimate 5.8 but it's contrived and avoidable.
