4 out of 5 stars Uhh 5.5?

Definitely felt harder than 5.5 to me. Placed a #4 cam up in the head jam, backed out then laid back on the undercling and pulled around. Felt pretty technical when I threw a chicken wing to brace before the final exit of the crux..

4 out of 5 stars Classic at Moores

First trad lead after 6 months off due to an ankle break. It was a great day. The head jam feature is a classic.

4 out of 5 stars Head Trip

Second trad lead! That was a mistake. With balls in stomach I did the business moves and ran out the top because I was too excited to place much gear. I think I placed 5 pieces in all.

3 out of 5 stars Head Case

2nd time climbing,1st time leading. Like I said befor, if your a new leader this is not an easy lead. More like a 5.7 move out and around the head jam. I got realy sketched out at all the green alge/moss on the rock form the ground to the jam. The best part of this climb is the belay ledge to sit and enjoy the view in the shade. Probably won't do this one again any time soon.
