5 out of 5 stars Took another run to clean the anchors

This is just a fun jugfest. Maybe not great for a new leader due to the generous space between bolts. That said, it's super easy climbing.

5 out of 5 stars We took a cyclist out on this climb

Chris was cycling from Tennesse to southern mexico. He stopped and the Potrero and was immediately taken by the climbing. He used to climb many years ago and he really wanted to climb before he headed out on his bike. So we borrowed some gear and took him out. He loved it. What's not to love about the cub...it's a great juggy funfest. Nice exposure at the finish.

4 out of 5 stars Easy, happy and juggy

This is just an easy happy climb. The bolts look slightly far apart, but, the climbing is so easy, it's really not an issue.
