4 out of 5 stars Fun, super easy route

I don't know why I've never done this one before. It is actually a fun little climb with bomber gear placements. Climb up and stand on a block, place gear, climb up and stand on block,... OK, it is a little dirty, and there is some brush growing on it, but it would clean up nicely with a little traffic. Also, don't let the 5.3 rating scare you away. :-)

3 out of 5 stars Red Wall Chimney Variation

First finished trad route ever for me. Did a weird right traverse after reaching the dirty ledge and caused tons of rope drag. Set up anchor and belayed my second for a walk-off.
Want to do it again by actually staying on route after the dirty ledge and finishing out.

3 out of 5 stars _

A series of stair steps, each about 8 feet tall, leads to a flat dirt ledge and another short crack. Good route to practice placing gear with tons of easy stances.
