4 out of 5 stars Funny rocks

Nice, simple route with really funky looking rounded chunks of rocks sticking out of the route. Easy route, but may be more of a challenge for new leaders than they would expect from a 5.5. Easy climb, potentially loose rock sections.

I didn't feel like walking off and rappelled off one of the routes to the right (west).

4 out of 5 stars Fun and good for training

This is the first wide diagonal crack you see on the left side of the face going up to a tree. I did this on a top rope while setting gear with a second rope (which I then lowered from). There are lots of great spots for placement using either cams or nuts and so I thought it was a nice training spot. I ended up veering away from the crack and going straight up since I was out of long slings and there were still lots of great placements.

3 out of 5 stars Ascent note

Plenty of good placement options. PG-13 cuz' there is some loose rock and lots of munge. It will get better with more climbs.
