3 out of 5 stars Great Beginnings

Fun positive moves and a good alternative start to Golden Years. Well protected with well camouflaged hangers. Cleaning up well.

2 out of 5 stars Perfect for a beginner lead

Nice to get loose on or for a beginner lead. Pretty boring but if you continue on the 2nd pitch to Golden Years or Dirty Deeds, then it is worth it.
