4 out of 5 stars First Yosemite lead!

Nice short and easy route, with a jamming crux at the bottom to a great big lie-back flake that protects well with a couple of 2.5-3.5" cams. To make this route even better climb bay tree crack above which is a much better climb and protects with all passive gear!
