4 out of 5 stars Cool in the shade

Great place to hang out when the sun comes out full force. You can also traverse at the top and transfer the top rope to the route directly to the left if you want to try top roping that one.

2 out of 5 stars Awkward one move wonder

I was tall enough to skip the bad intermediate holds to the better holds up top. Could be tough for a beginner that is shorter.
