3 out of 5 stars Fun for granite

I think getting to the first bolt may be a little scary for a 5.7 climber to lead. I think after getting to the first bolt it's probably a 5.6 climb. The climb was fairly easy, but fun. It was nice to have holds on granite. The finish is unbolted but easy climbing. At the top there is one hanger on a bolt, the other bolt is missing its hanger. There is a bolder to sling but it's pretty far back, take a lot of slings, or you can place a stopper in a crack up there and use less sling, or do both for safety. You could scramble up to top rope.

5 out of 5 stars Nice but a little bit slippery - Buena pero resbala un poquito

The crux is a little bit slippery the rock is worn out so is difficult to keep the foot steady and there's not many edges you can grab on to but after you pass it is a walk in the park. El crux esta un poco resbaloso, la roca se ha desgastado haciendo dificultoso el mantener el pie fijo y no hay mucho donde poner las manos para un buen agarre, pero despues que lo pasas es como subir una escalera.
