Description:

10-15 degrees from vertical, fairly smooth limestone, but easy to read. Holds are large and plentifull. Watch for the tree limbs on abseil/rappel.

Good route for beginners, or as a warmup. There are plenty of big holds, and the wall is a little less than vertical. There are also some pockets and other smaller features, if you want to make it harder.

Good climb. This was my first real rock climb. 3/4 of the way up I struggled slightly but I powered through.

Beginning was probably the hardest part (lots of polished rock in the area); runout spot but big ledge in between bolts 2 & 3.

2 out of 5 stars Warm-up

Slick rock makes it look alot harder than it really is. Start a little left and walk your feet to more solid placements. After the third bolt, you're gonna have to walk ur feet up and pull a little mantle action. I said warm up.
