Easiest route at Wall. Great first lead. On far left end of wall, 3rd class up to a grassy ledge. A couple of 5.6 moves lead to easier 5.2 climbing above.... one 90 foot rap decent

Did this route on the way to Buffalo Brothers. Honestly can't believe someone took the time to bolt this route.

Super easy climb. I practically ran up the thing I was having so much fun. I don't know, I just like low angle ramps, they are fun to play on.

This should be a 5.2... rediculously easy... I didn't even use my hands for half of it...

The top of this climb would be even more fun if it wasn't quite so dirty. Highly featured low-angle ramp + lots of dirt and plants = rope management nightmare. May be better to flake your rope onto a flat dish.

Neat, low angle ramp serves as an approach pitch to several other climbs. Interestingly, crux moves are unprotected at the start. An off-balance fall here could send both the climber and belayer off the belay ledge. Above this, climbing is *very* easy. Lots of dirt and some sandy areas of the ramp. Great first lead? I'm not so sure. Although the majority of the climbing is in the very low 5th class range (some may choose to keep their hiking boots on), bolt spacing above the first repel station is pretty huge, just the kind of thing that scares the shit out of new leaders. I would recommend Mission Gorge as a more suitable area for a first lead.
