Description:

Not to be confused with "couer de lion" this is a great climb for beginners to get used to the exposure. Watch the crux moving around the bulge just off the belay station.

4 out of 5 stars Very fun route

Great line. Sketchy bulge just off the belay station, and a long runout on easy climbing between the 2nd and 3rd bolt (unless I just missed a bolt). Good route, nice warm up.

4 out of 5 stars Solid climb, hard start

Hard start that traverses left, rather deceiving, given the grade haha. I suggest pre-clipping the first bolt or two.

5 out of 5 stars Queue de Lion

First moves are a little scary, but once in the route, it was fun.
