3 out of 5 stars Nice Easy Trad Climb

The 5.3 is true to rating, pro was pretty good (was a bit unsure about the middle loose-ish blocks and didn't use them). Was a tree at the top of the slab with a rappel ring on it.

Red Point Red Point ascent by: breaksteel on 2008-07-10 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars Quick lead

Lead this so Travis and Jenn could climb Mays Way on top rope. Very easy climbing and mostly passive pro.
Red point cause I've climbed it before.
