Top Rope, Great first Lead route. Take medium to large sizes of cams and hexes.
The crack to the right of the tree. Far left side of section.
Starts in the hole at the bottom of the crack. ( Some people
start to the left of the hole to make it easier.) You just follow
the crack to the top. Great route to start people on. See picture at top of section...

Employ all three techniques to make this climb fun
I really enjoyed this climb as it starts with perfect hand jam into fists up to a nice finger lock with some more jams mixed in between. When it got wide, i bailed right onto the face for some aesthetic face climbing to a fun top out.
finally bothered to lead this thing: it was my first route at lincoln, on rope-solo, and then I'd followed Beam's lead . . . it was fun, but I wouldn't really agree with it being a "good first trad lead" for somebody, as it tends to be sandy and the pro isn't as straightforward as it looks from the ground.
