2 out of 5 stars never did this before

We went inside the chimney, it was fun, but felt much harder than a 5.2. Something different, not sure I would do it again.

3 out of 5 stars ok beginner lead

good way to get to Eyesore or Trapped Like a Rat toprope setups.

Have done the start inside and outside of the chimney, both are fun, think the outside is harder than 5.2

3 out of 5 stars eh, alright

fun but kind of boring due to the lack of pro needed... or available. only placed three pieces. like someone else said.. a few fun moves and a lot of walking around. the chimney at the bottom was cool tho.

4 out of 5 stars Good Beginner Lead

This was one of my first leads, and I thought 5.2 would be a piece of cake. Surprisingly, I found myself wondering if I was on the right route when I was standing on top of the knife-edge flake under the ceiling. First, I had trouble figuring out which way to go, then, I couldn't quite reach the next hold and didn't want to move without having protection. I was being very cautious because I was new at leading, so it was a good challenge. I really enjoyed this climb.
