2 out of 5 stars Rough Start

Halfway up you can walk to the anchor but the start is not a 5.5 beginning.

3 out of 5 stars Solid

Start feels like a 5.6 but drops progressively as you go up. Good starter route for little ones if you boost them to the easier holds (5yr-olds have a slight height disadvantage).

3 out of 5 stars My first outdoor lead

The starting move was a bit more than I anticipated, but the rest of the climb was as rated. Solid stops to set draws and clips. Good as first time, but considering that I was able stand and use both hands at each of the hangers, it wasn't as challenging as leads I have done in the gym. Lots of holds, but you still have to use your head a bit.
