This is a classic trad style route. Many climbers have made this their first lead route. I think everyone would enjoy this route, even those of you pulling 5.11/5.12 grades. It's nice to take it easy once in a while. Very nice pro placements, not to exposed, a few trees that could be slung if you need to feel safer on your first lead. This was one of my first climbs on top-rope and was the 2nd outdoor trad lead route I ever did. I don't really think there's a crux on this route. Most of its prtty easy and about the same difficulty, depending on your experience.
Basically, this is a left-going flake/crack type route. You'll use medium nuts (#5-#10 depending on the climber) and could use a cam and a tree or two to be slung with 240cm draw (2x120) and a locking biner.
The rappel is easy. There are many trees to use as well as a nice new rappel station at the top installed in fall 2002 by Ulysse Richard.
