Description:

Easy intro, follwed by a small overhang then a fairly easy run to the anchors. Short yet fun. Some climbers fidn this to be at least as hard as "Many Happy Returns."

4 out of 5 stars Fun for a lead, with some trad gear.

Bring some smaller cams with you to help you protect yourself before reaching the first bolt which is pretty high up there. A number 3 mastercam will do just fine. The Crux is just past the first bolt. Then everything after is pretty easy. A medium sized stopper will protect you between the first and second bolt which happen to be the only bolts on the entire route. A number 2 mastercam will protect you from a long, but easy runout area to the top. Anchor can consist of a larger stopper in a flake and the two bolts or use the oak tree at the top which is what most people do.

4 out of 5 stars Tall 1st clip

If you are 6' the first clip is easy, if you are 5'10" it may be a bit dicey. Bring a few 0.5-1.5" cams, or this route becomes a 5.7R/5.5X. There are no bolts for the top half of this climb until you reach the anchors
