4 out of 5 stars Love the Start!

This route is best if you start far to the left and traverse towards the corner of the dihedral, and then pull the overhang. Gives it more character I think! This route is so easy to protect on trad! This time only used three pieces of gear, which was much more appropriate than the 5 or more I sewed it up with last time! (I'm a newbie)

PG-13 because of the unprotected overhanging start over sharp boulders.

4 out of 5 stars Fun on Trad, Short

This route has a really cool overhanging boulder start. Then you got protection in the crack, can use all passive pro. Top bolted! PG-13 due to sharp boulders at the bottom when doing the overhang with no protection, even a short fall could really do some damage. Get a spotter!
