a pretty easy hike around the back gets you to the top of this problem where you can rappel off a tree at the top and set a top rope. It's a pretty interesting lead, the first 30 feet or so had no protection so you've got to run it out. But from there on, it's pretty well protected. The crack at the top is a bit small and it's slanted down to the right. If you can pull through the crack (the crux), the rest is thin crimps and sketchy foot work. Everything up to the crack is pretty much 5.5-5.7. So far, from the crack on has been called a 5.10 (but if you think it's less than that, I'm willing to be wrong...). It's a really fun lead, worth the challenge.

My first harder lead on trad and first attempt to lead this route, Hang dogged getting into the dihedral and then trying to pull the finger pocket above the dihedral.

finally got this on lead (trad) and on my first trad attempt, I got it clean... No hang dogs, no falls, no problems sticking gear, just clean. And I often struggle on top-rope on this particular climb and I didn't expect to get it on lead without any trouble. I'm very pleased with my climb.
