Description:

Great slab route for beginners or just for fun. Start moves are the hardest, then easier climbing on well-protected rock. Left of Looney Tunes.

4 out of 5 stars My partners 2nd lead ever

First day of climbing we tagged this guy. It's like 5.6 climbing if you go right and feels like 5.9-10 moves if you go directly up the face. Overall it's a nice beginner route, but not the best climbing

Interesting climbing. The crux appears to be the start, weird that the bolts are so far left.
