4 out of 5 stars Fun

First climb of the trip. Fun and interesting climb. Unusual downclimb, especially at dusk. The downclimb would make a great beginner wall for kids.

4 out of 5 stars Fun Lead

Lead it with Margot on second. Her first roped climb following. She did a great job! Fun route with some tricky moves, good 5.6 first lead because it has great opportunites for pro all the way up.
