4 out of 5 stars couple good balance moves, good route

I did this route last week and really enjoyed it. It is a 5.9, I don't think it needs the +. A ton of bolts, so its super safe - great for a first time leader (no worries of a fall and a bunch of practice). A couple nice and easy balancey moves, no power needed. I will definitely climb this again.

3 out of 5 stars Don't Get Lost

The line is left of the bolt line. At first I tried going right and hit a dead end. The left line went much smoother once I down climbed one or two moves.
