Jack Knife is a fantastic first trad lead! It is a relatively easy climb with decent placements everywhere. This is where I taught my partner to trad lead.

4 out of 5 stars Super Fun

This short little climb is nice because it rolls cracks, dihedrals, jugs, and slab all into one nice little package (of course, somewhat dependent on how you choose to climb it). Also, the gear placements are very good.
