4 out of 5 stars Finish up

We were tired and had this top roped from my lead, so I did it again just to get another climb in. There are a few places you can try to make moves harder, so I did that.

4 out of 5 stars Fun, for granite

First bolt is high - need a spot and a strong second move. There are probably only a couple 5.7 moves, second move off the ground and right after first bolt if you go straight up. The rest is pretty easy, but I don't mind some big holds on granite when my fingers are sore. I had fun leading this. It was challenging enough with the light protection to make it exciting, but easy enough to be okay with the light protection. View from the top is great. It was a warm day, so it was nice to have the shade (first half of the day).

3 out of 5 stars Tougher than expected

Both my friend and I wanted to lead it, but were both willing to let the other. He lead it and did a great job. It was harder than I expected for a 5.7, maybe mostly because it was in the shade in the morning and real cold. The first bolt is pretty high but there are decent start holds. The top is run out, but there are real good holds. The summit of this is a great little platform to sit on and enjoy and amazing view. This is a neat boulder. Used Hiliter to top rope Naked Edge.
