A nice route to claim your first 5.8 trad lead. Protects well. Use a 3.5 or 4 friend to protect the entrance to the crack.

4 out of 5 stars Good climb

The crack offers a lot of jamming options makes the ascent smooth, The crux for me came at the end of the crack up into a slab littered with small crimps barely big enough for my fingertips.

3 out of 5 stars First trad lead

Too strong or stupid to know better. Just climbed and threw my pro into the crack. "cool lead!" Who knows how well the gear was placed. Neither of us prolly knew better. :)

I dialed the moves on rappell for my first lead. Marty Bland's book names this route Jam Crack. Loved coming over the roof at the beginning of the route.
