4 out of 5 stars Nice Trad Practice

I used this route to practice placing trad protection. This was the first time I have tried a trad route and I was suprised how easy gear placement was on it. You can use a bolt or two from the route just left of this over the first 15' before you get to some excellent cracks for placing cams and stoppers.

4 out of 5 stars good easy trad lead

I pretty much climbed the arete. You can wander right and left and the climbing is easy and after the first 15 or so feet the gear placements are good.
