4 out of 5 stars Wonderful Route!

I love this route! I've TR'd it a bunch of times. I can't believe it took me 'till today to even attempt to lead it. I guess it's just so easy to set TR that I never got around to leading... 'till today.

BTW - The nice rail that used to be just below the anchors is gone. The flatter ledge that remains feels a bit crumbly. Find another way to finish.

Also - The Prairie Falcons that nest up above the middle of the wall are back. They didn't seem to be bothered by our presence, but we stayed down at the right end of the wall. We watched them take several critters up to their nest.

3 out of 5 stars My First 11!

This is a FUN route. Avoid the big sidepull 10 feet up from the start. It's cracked, and you don't need it. Don't tell anyone, but we think that a lot of the white marks are bird poo rather than chalk.
