I thought it was a good route, like others have mentioned there is certainly some polished sections! There is a piton before the anchor.

A fun climb with good laybacks you must take some pressure off your feet to keep them from slipping on the poslished rock.

2 out of 5 stars Polished Climb

Nice little 5.7. All of the obvious holds are polished out (it's similar to climbing on polished marble) so creativity is required in finding holds. One fixed pin protects an otherwise run-out section.

I thought this would be a good route to practice placing gear, but as a newbie in trad, i found it to be a deceiving and fairly sketchy 5.7. The rock is very slippery, making gear placement quite awkward.
