3 out of 5 stars followed

I'm not good enough to lead at this point but my brother lead this for his first rout. It's perfect for a first time leading

5 out of 5 stars Nice lead

I top-roped this last weekend and then led it. As a relatively new leader I thought it was very nice. There's a section about a third of the way up that flares and doesn't protect well, but otherwise it protects very nicely - with many different options in terms of sizes - everything from yellow alien to BD#4. We went up to the left and belayed at a tree. From there it's class 3 to the top and there's a nice class 2 or 3 trail down the back side. We didn't do pitches 2 and 3 because the beta for these is pretty poor and the climb is really all about this first pitch. There are three other great climbs right beside this one - two bolted face climbs and then jellyroll arch (a 5.8 trad route).
