5 out of 5 stars Amazing route

I started trad climbing this spring. Getting to lead an uber-classic line like this was incredibly satisfying. One of the highlights of the season for me. The line goes up two steep, narrow ramps connected with a bulge. The bulge, low on the route, is cruxy. Near the top the second ramp narrows and you work around another bulge with an amazing sense of exposure. Easy 5.9, but unique and exposed.
