3 out of 5 stars Great 5.7 Confidence Builder

This route was short, very easy, pretty fun, and took gear really well. I'd say that this would be a good choice for somebody just breaking into 5.7 - it's an easy 5.7, but I'm not sure if it's quite 5.6

There are bolts with chains at the top of the route, but they're off to the right (over the other route), so I built an anchor that was more directly overhead. Finding good placements for the anchor was trickier than finding placements on the route, but doable.
