4 out of 5 stars Bolted face is very slick

I toproped this route. My friend led it and had to place one piece of protection on his own then used the bolt for the second piece. The face was very slick, but had places to put your feet. Good footwork practice. really enjoyed it.

3 out of 5 stars Fun toprope

I climbed the routes around it, and then lowered over the route to do it. Very thin climbing

TR'ed this after doing Lisa Falls Right. I'd say this looked sketchy to lead, but the bolt is right where you need it.
