Easy and fun. Climb straight up until you get to a ledge with a tree on your right. Belay off of bolted anchors on the ledge. P2 Climb up (the tree) a short distance and then traverse to a good belay point on the left. P3 Move one meter to the left and climb a short and easy section with great pro to the bolted anchors at the top.

As a beginner lead climber, the second pitch was pretty scary.

Lead the first pitch of this climb. Hardest part of the first pitch was just getting off the gound.

Calvin led the route, I followed and cleaned. Fun, with a few faith moves especially at the traverse. Short by Bon Echo standards.
