Description:

As for most of the easier routes on the west side it shares the start with most of the 5.5/6 routes. Very much like Easy Street but with a lot better variation to the climbing.

3 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

This route started off slow and only being a 5.6 I was not expecting a lot. But I must say that there were a couple of fun pitchs, I did more of the varations to try to up grade it but I must say that the run out traverse was very fun. I would recomend this route just for that pitch, there is some what good gear at the start of the traverse and the rock is good.
