3 out of 5 stars Rope Solo Practice

I used this route to practice my roped solo techniques. I chose this route because of its low rating and familiarity to me.

3 out of 5 stars Short, easy climb

We warmed up on this climb. It is a very easy, low angle climb with good protection. It's only like 5 minutes from the parking lot and the rock quality is pretty good for the pinnacles.

3 out of 5 stars Following beginner leaders

Used this climb as a practice for two beginning leaders in our group. Well spaced bolts make this climb a good choice for a beginner. Plus we could walk to top to check anchor set up for them, too.
