4 out of 5 stars Great warm-up

First lead climb ever. Used as warm-up for every visit after that. The pockety crack near the last bolt can give some trouble, but I wouldn't put this route at any harder than 5.7. It just feels harder the first time up!

Great Climb for the grade. Loved every minute of it. The FA called this route Dark Water.

4 out of 5 stars Good warmup route

The traverse in the beginning was a bit of a toughie if you don't know where to place your feet. The crux would be the small crack after the third or fourth clip, but after that, it's all good. This is a good route to learn cleaning too.

3 out of 5 stars Very cool crux. The rest is meh.

The finger-crack layback crux will spit off the unsuspecting climber. Dare I say 5.9? Yep. First sport lead of the day... great warm-up.
