4 out of 5 stars Up and down up and down

One of my first successful sport leads. After, the old man had me downclimb, and re-climb several times with a huge rack on my waist to get used to the weight and balance for future trad leading.

3 out of 5 stars Good route.

Tricky until the moves are dialed, then a romp.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Great climb. The crux for me was at the bottom directly below the 1st bolt. This was my first 5.8 lead in a long time. I thought it was classic. I ran the rope through the anchors for a top rope and climbed it a second time while actually attempting to climb the next climb to the right.
