This is a fairly difficult route for a begineer. 5.8 is nothing to snease at if you are physically weak and in your first year climbing, as i was when I first top-roped this sucker.
I most recently climbed this route in summer 2002. A few years after my initial ascent of Fern Gully.
My most recent ascent went much better. Its a solid 5.8 route. Small holds with some awkward positions and moments. Don't go into the trees, or your off the route. Watch out for bees. I plan on leading this route in spring 2003, as I'll have lead gear and some bigger balls by then... not to mention moer experience climbing in general, plus leading.
ENJOY. Its a great route with easy top-access if you are wanting to top-rope it without having a leader to set it for you.
