4 out of 5 stars Fun

My first 5.8 trad lead! As much as i'd like to say I lead a 5.9, every other source has this at 5.8. Start is the crux, you're moving off a boulder into a crack above your head while there's a 7' rocky fall below you. Luckily below the vertical crack, there's a horizontal crack that you can place pro. An anchor can be set on a nice vertical crack slightly to the right of the finish.

4 out of 5 stars Easy access, great pro

Done as a simulated lead with a guide. There's only one move of 5.9 at the start, the rest felt 7ish. Great climb to learn on. It took tons of pro.

4 out of 5 stars Soft

and fluffy for 5.9, don't be afraid of the crappy looking flakes near the top they are solid enough.
