Description:

This route is a great lead for a beginner, plenty of holds and places for protection. Pitch 1 climbs easy 5.4 to a wide belay ledge, move left and climb an easy chimney to belay at a tree. Continue up to summit on S face: face climbing with occasional gear placements. Finding the rap station isn't obvious--you have to scramble north on ledges for more than the 100 feet suggested by the guidebook and the bolts are in the 3rd U-shaped notch.

Nice easy lead with lots of wind. Watch for loose rock on P3!

3 out of 5 stars My First Trad Lead!

My first lead. Thought about doing pitch one of Recon, but found, on mock lead, that the upper portion was sparse on gear. Did pitch one of The Bomb instead. Without mock lead first, but a quick perusal on rappel probably downgrades from onsight to redpoint.
