4 out of 5 stars Tough but fun for a newbie!

New climber (about 4th climb ever), made it to the top with the help of Stone Age Gym peeps, and other climbers shouting cues to me.
I think I did the chimney (??)

4 out of 5 stars no pro the last 20 ft

Good climb but without a Valley Giant or Big Bros the last 20 ft is unprotected since the bolt has been chopped.

4 out of 5 stars First Lead!

Little bit run-out at the top. Wouldn't have chosen it as first lead if I had known, but it was a great experience.
