4 out of 5 stars First lead

Maybe because it was my first ever lead, but this route felt scary for a 5.5. Not that it's too hard, but I guess I was expecting easier for the grade it's given. Lower half gear is there but not the best for your first time up. Ends at 2 bolts w/rap rings that are shared with the routes to the right.

4 out of 5 stars Whoah!

The pro is very sparse on the lower half of the climb, and rope drag can be a killer. Great fun route though.
