Excellent. Up to midsize cams, and a couple of good nut placements.

4 out of 5 stars Humbled

I love slab climbing so I assumed that I would have no difficulties with the slick start, especially since it is a 5.7. I was proven wrong. I slipped in the low crux section and fell, my first on a low grade route. Talk about a humbling experience. Luckily, I was able to place a nut down low. It didn't look like a good placement but it held and I weigh about 230 lbs. I had my partner finish lowering me to the ground so I could shake it off and start over. I was a little more aggressive this time and made it through the crux with no issues but I was now a little nervous. The rest of the route went with ease and was easily protected but I did proceed much more carefully. I don't know that I would recommend leading this route after seeing how dangerous it can be. Just be generous with the pro initially. There is a set of rap rings at the top of the route.

3 out of 5 stars Should have led it

Went ahead and top-roped it again since I'd remembered the first few moves to be sketchy. They still were - definitely wouldn't want to fall before that first gear placement. Feels very heady there for a 5.7 but the rest is quite casual.
